The Start

I started blogging about a year and a half ago.  I found it was a way to journal the life of our family.  We were making a big move and leaving wonderful friends and family.  It was a great way to keep them connected to our lives from so far away and for me to document the adventures we were having as we started anew in a different city.

In February of this year our third son Jared was officially diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Our experiences leading up to that diagnosis and following began to make up most of the activity on our family blog.  I decided to start this blog as a way to still journal about Jared and maintain balance on the family blog.

My aim with this blog is to journal our experiences as a family, Jared's personal successes and challenges, and my own experiences and feelings as his mom.  I write this all mostly for myself, but if others can find something beneficial along the way then I find value in this experience.
