Welcome to our journey

My wish is that as you read this blog you can laugh, cry, smile, and enjoy all the stories that I share with you. I am on a journey and I am happy to have you join me.

My name is Rachel, mom to Blaise who is almost 3 (diagnosed with PWS), Maddock 6 months old, and wife to Jona. I have been blessed to be a stay at home mom to my wonderful boys. In September of 2009 my sweet Blaise was diagnosed with PWS. This has forever changed the course of my life. I have spent many years wondering what my purpose in life was, and when it would be revealed to me. I no longer wonder, my purpose is in front of me everyday. I am no part of a club that I didn't choose to join, but wouldn't trade for the world. Along my journey thus far I have met some of the most amazing people. I have come to realize not only has god put special needs individuals on this earth for a reason, but he also put their family members here as well. My two boys teach me so much everyday, I have become the woman I always desired to be. Each day my boys teach me kindness, patience, love, and how to have endless amounts of joy and laughter. Through my journey as their mom I have become a strong and determined woman. My journey has just begun and I am filled with wonder about what the future holds for us.

I Feel So Blessed

I have never felt so blessed before. Although the kids and I have been sick for 3 days I am still able to acknowledge the blessings before me. I wanted to dedicate this post to some my fellow PWS families. Never in my life have I encountered such amazing, strong, and completely selfless individuals. To all the people who have reached their hands out to mine, THANK YOU. I cannot describe how it feels to know that somebody who doesn't even know me cares so much. It gives new meaning to the old saying, "It takes a village to raise a child." I am so happy to be part of this village, this community. I am blessed to be in your presence. Thank you for allowing me to be myself, and thank you for accepting my son just the way he is.
