I’m Lee. I am a resilient, persistent, determined woman. I run, I garden, I love the outdoors and I write. I am happily married, and have 4 kids. My youngest is Ben, and he’s the reason I’m writing. Ben was born with Down syndrome. We adopted him because we have an older child with Down syndrome, and thought it would complete our family to have another child with Down syndrome. Ben also has hearing impairment, Hirschsprung’s disease, Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome and Functional vomiting. He’s a survivor of Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL), and has recently been diagnosed with Parkinsonism, most likely a late effect of his leukemia treatment.
This blog is about my entry into the writing world and about me, a mom trying to tread water in a ceaseless storm.
