Where to Start?

I am not a writer.  I am not a photgrapher.  I have never even been a blogger.  But I am a mom.  I am a mom of 3 amazing boys, our 3 little miracles.  They are are all 3 special in their own way.  However, it is because of Parker that I decided to do this blog. 

Parker.  Parker was diagnosed with cerebral palsy in August of 2010.  He was only 10 months old at the time.  Even though I had guessed that he had it from about 5 months old, that day of diagnosis was one of the most difficult days I have ever had.  (But that is a completely different post.) 

I belong to a group called Full House Moms which is a moms of multiples group.  (I have twin boys.)  Through this group I met a wonderful woman named Shasta.  She lived here in my town and also had twin boys, one of whom has cerebral palsy.   She was the first person to open my world to blogs.  Hers is amazing!  Please visit it http://www.outrageousfortune.net/.  Once I read one of her posts I was hooked.  Everything she had written could have come directly from my mouth.  I finally felt like I was not so alone and not crazy.  From there I started reading more blogs written by moms of children with special needs.  They made me cry, made me laugh, made me say "me too!" and most of all inspired me! 

So that is the main reason that I am starting this blog.  I would like to share my thoughts and stories with other moms out there who may be in that dark place that I was in. 

I also realize that this blog will not just be about Parker and cerebral palsy.  But it will also be about my other 2 amazing little boys, Brady and Ryder because they are all 3 such little miracles.  (again, a totally different post) 

I am not sure how often I will be able to post.  It has taken me probably about 5 months to actually get this first one done.  Things are a little hectic in our household!  However, because I am a morning person anyway, I am going to try to get up a little earlier sometimes to write my thoughts down.  As I said before, I am not a writer.  My grammar is not the best.  And I may not say it beautifully, but I will say it.  (that is my general disclaimer about my writing skills!)  My pictures are also not amazing like so many other bloggers I know.  But I do have lots of them!
So back to that main question...where to start?  I guess I start here.  I will hit the "publish post" button and begin my blog of our 3 little miracles.  Thank you for reading!
