About Me: I have the honor of being the mother to a beautiful little girl. I did not think motherhood would be a possibility, but thanks to the perseverance of my husband and a few medical professionals, Ava was born. I've tried my best to take care of her, help her learn and be there for her every need. She is a special needs child who was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in October, 2009. She has a long road ahead of her -- and I will be there every step of the way.
