Special Needs is an understatement when it’s your first child. We brought our baby home for the first time at 6 1/2 months old expecting to be a stay at home mom, but in actuality I became a stay at home nurse to my baby. Our daughter Caleigh was born at 28wks with Gastroschisis. She spent the first 6 1/2 months of her life in the NICU. After 9 bowel surgeries she has intestinal failure, short bowel syndrome. Caleigh also has PVL resulting in Cerebral Palsy & complex partial seizures. Caleigh’s Corner is a place that I journal Caleigh’s progress and setbacks. I journal my thoughts and feelings as a special needs mother and at the same time I hope that I can help another family through their similar situation.

Sneak Peek: Raising A Special ChildSneak Peek: Raising A Special Child

A Single Mom raising a Special Needs child and trying my best to balance real life with “what ifs”. My life is full and often pretty crazy dealing with a special child and all that comes along with it, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Austin was born at 36 weeks. He was diagnosed with Branchio-Oto-Renal (Melnick-Fraser) syndrome. From Birth to 3 months he struggled but was “attachment” free. Since then he has earned himself some pretty fancy equipment & technology that help get him through the day. To date he sports a Tracheostomy, Gastrostomy tube, Softband BAHA and Posterior walker and is learning Sign Language. As you can see he does not let any of his “issues” stop him from moving forward and having fun. He is truly an inspiration and a fighter.

Small Portion of a Life's JourneySmall Portion of a Life’s Journey

Information I’ve gathered in regards to my son’s condition, hydranencephaly (http://hydranjourney.blogspot.com), which is a rare neurological condition. Not only is it rare, it’s terminal…which is a devastating diagnosis to receive for your child. While searching for a glimmer of optimism through the darkness, I couldn’t find any…so I created my own through this blog. It’s filled with the knowledge, resources, inspirations, and hope that I’ve found along the way. Of course, there’s a bit of venting thrown in there too…just as you could imagine facing such adversity in the medical community as an advocate for your child.

I also have found great solace in networking with other family members who are following along, or leading the way, on the same or similar journey…I find strength in great amounts of knowledge, and find peace in being able to share it with others.
