So you can see the asymmetry here in my lips. I am around 7 in this photo. If you zoom in you can see the pull in my chin as well. My mom was told by the Pediatrician that I had a Bells Palsy. I now know that this is all from my buccal tie and tongue tie. I am waiting for Dr Scott Siegel( preferred provider) , for the Fall, when he will have more Manhattan hours. At that point, I can go get my buccals revised. He did my tongue tie revision in March, but he is close to 2 hours away. Post tongue tie revision, I am now chewing fluidly and 90 percent of my sinus headaches, migraines and TMJ are gone!!!. I also went to craniosacral therapy, at the time, to help me reduce my facial and neck tension( the tongue tie is connected to the floor of the mouth which can cause these issues). The buccal recision will be purely cosmetic for me. I would love to smile and talk with less asymmetry.
Gordon Hartman built a park for 100% of the people. It is a place where kids with and without disabilities can play together. Everything from the train to the Ferris wheel is wheelchair accessible. The park was inspired by his daughter, who is on the autism spectrum, and had previously found it difficult making friends. #fgf#feelgoodfriday
MYTH: If I sweat a lot, it means I got a good workout in! 😳💁🏻
How much you sweat is actually genetic...some people just naturally sweat more than others. If you don't sweat a lot during workouts, it does NOT mean you didn't put a lot of effort in! .
I sweat so much during my workout today (not typical for me) it poured down rain!! 😱😅 Now that's a good workout. 😉
My IEP Gave Me PTSD: A Student's Perspective...
"In a world where ableist mindsets are still a thing, teachers and parents need to realize that their students will one day become adults, and if a sense of self-advocacy in a positive light can't be delivered at a young age, it makes it harder for a student to find their voice and self esteem to make it in this world. Please don't demean us by focusing on all the negatives. A little positivity can go a long way." - Mandy Ree. (LINK IN BIO)

His smile captures my heart more every single day. The 'hard' days are becoming fewer and fewer as he gets more confident and comfortable. The changes in him since visits stopped and TPR was granted is nothing short of amazing. When we had the sibling visit a few weeks ago his biological grandma told me that she's never seen him so happy and settled - and that we are the perfect parents for him. Such simple words which carry so much meaning for adoptive parents. Every day brings us closer to becoming a forever family! #ourgoodlife#fostertoadopt#openadoption#adoption#knittogetherbyadoption#fostercare#fosterfamily#specialneeds#comeonadoptiondate
NO COMPARES A TU NIÑO CON OTRO
Clave para fomentar la buena autoestima y confianza. Cada niño es diferente en el mejor sentido de la palabra, es único y dueño de sus necesidades sean especiales o no. Son individuos que van adquiriendo destrezas y habilidades a su paso. Queda del adulto decidir no etiquetar. #specialneedsgirl#specialmom#specialneeds
This is the boy I work with, Jeremy. He has autism, but he is so much more than that. He loves music, has a great memory when I comes to dates, and desperately wants to have a pet rat.
Today we went out to lunch at Friendly's and then stopped by Petsmart so he could look at the animals. I'm very excited because he, his mom, and I have decided that he is going to start volunteering at Petsmart to work with the cats that are for adoption. I will be there of course to help him, but I can't wait to see how much he will grow from this experience!
This post #ontheblog was one of the hardest ones to write. It came from a vulnerable place, a place that isn't always easy to visit.
When you see others mistreat your child--especially because of something they can't help, it pierces deeper than anything you can imagine. My hope is that this post will help others understand our son (and children like him) just a little bit better. ❤️ Link: http://anupstreamlife.com/dear-friends-need-know-child-special-needs/
APPRECIATE WHAT YOUR KIDS CAN DO AND NOT WHAT THEY CANT...HAVE PATIENCE!! I often hear many parents complaining about "My kid didn't make All Stars in sports or he/she didn't get straight A's or he/ she didn't do this or that right.
I would do anything for Pauly to be able to do certain things.We all want the best for our kids but we have to be grateful for what they are able to do. As tough as our situation can be with Pauly unable to see and talk it could always be worse. We do our best by showing him love and compassion and teaching him independent skills. Just keep your head up because whatever you're going through someone out there has it 100 times harder. Stay blessed.... #paulysproject#unconditionallove#begrateful#countyourblessings#appreciatewhatyouhave#autism#blindness#awareness#specialneeds
This is what happens when you try to take a family picture. 🤗 We are just a bunch of goofballs and I like it that way. I think humor is so important...especially in a blended family. There can be so much negativity that can surround us and try to steal our joy, but we can't let it. It is our choice what we let consume us and control us. We choose joy and laughter. We are not perfect and joy isn't everyday...but we try...and we work hard to make life as enjoyable as possible. Thank you @doreenalvarezphotography for capturing our silly side.
FRI-YAY // Shout out to Mommy for surviving an entire week as a stay-at-home mom! There were so many errands to run and things to do around the house that a week away from the day job was just that - a week away from the day job. But getting to linger a little after dropping this guy off and picking him up from school every day was everything. Who wouldn't want to spend more time with that little face?! .
P.S. Collier's reppin his Aunt Caity today wearing the adorable shirt she gave him 😎

When I found out that @rausch.inga had selected our precious Teagan as one of her subjects to paint I was deeply touched. An entire rush of emotions came bubbling to the surface. When she finished it I was stunned at how beautifully she had captured my angel. When it arrived here in California from Germany, 8 weeks later, I was completely unprepared for its unveiling. I held it wrapped tightly in its shipping paper for several weeks. I kept thinking , tomorrow... I'll open it tomorrow. And as the days passed and the two year anniversary of Teagan's passing came and went I knew I needed to open it. When I did finally muster the courage, it completely took my breath away. I remember the moment that was captured here by @rausch.inga like it was just yesterday. Teagan was showing off her new ruffled outfit I had made her. I knew I needed to post something spectacular to show off this magnificent work of art, but nothing I film can really show what I see. We are so honored that our precious Teagan has been memorialized in this beautiful portrait. What better way to share it with you than with our precious Anushka. Anushka is what #teaganslegacy fully embodies. Anushka is also the same age and size that Teagan was when she passed. Everyday I am reminded of her love and how blessed I was to have her as mine even if it was for far too short of time. @yekaterinao #perfectlyimperfect#love#loveneverfails#rescue#rescuekitty#nevergiveup#specialneeds#adoptdontshop#fosteringsaveslives#cute#cats#catsofinstagram#cats_of_instagram#petsofinstagram#animallovers#teamcatmojo#thedodo#thedailykitten#tabby#tabbycat#kitty#kitten#kittycat#meow#bestmeow#savethemall
This is an imperfect picture. And yet, it's a perfect one.
This picture took 10min to set up, with some infinite amount of coaxing, bribing, high-pitched modeling of smiles, snapping, squeezes, and fast camera clicking. The pillows and the jacket were intermittently given, taken, and given to soothe and satisfy. Allowances were made for a sitting pose rather than the initially-desired "stand and hold each other's arms" pose. Which is fine, the latter smelled too much of senior prom pics anyway.
Three smiles were given up on. At some point, the camera just kept clicking, for the sake of hopefully finding "the best one" later, in the mountain of 25. My cheeks hurt. I'm pretty sure I snapped, "can we be done already?" because I could feel that it wasn't going to be perfect.
But 7 years later, I actually see it with new eyes. It's THE PERFECT picture. It hides nothing. She's never hidden anything. This picture is the face of severe.

Sending prayers up for @supermananthony_ family, his mom, brothers and sister. He was definitely a #Superman and his mom was a hero for the love and care she gave him! Check her page, I've watched her journey and you'll be amazed by their strength. I pray for healing for all our special needs children and families. I haven't experienced this pain, so I can't say I know what his mom is feeling. But I am also a special needs mom and we rock hard for our kids! Praying for the family during this difficult time. #SleepWellSuperman 🙏🏾 #BrainInjury#SpecialNeeds#SpecialNeedsFamilies#SuccessWithSpecialNeeds
