Jay is one of our many residents who stays active through volunteering. The sleeve on the @rootsbrewshop coffee you may have enjoyed this morning was carefully stamped by him with extra love. We at David's House are so thankful for the servant hearts of our residents and the multitude of opportunities they have to engage with the greater Grand Rapids community! #growingtogether

A bit of wind and quite a bit of rain doesn't stop us from having fun - my friends and I having lunch while watching and singing along to "Mama Mia"!

Oh my, look at this fantastic piece of advertising we found roadside!!! Love that they are accessible for all! Calling all those with a serious case of OCD - obsessive coffee disorder!! "Hi team! Wow what awesome images...feeling the love! We're 100% wheelchair accessible...can't wait to see you there! Thanks 🙂"

Two questions:
1. Why is it inappropriate for me to react with such enthusiasm when I'm served chips & queso?
2. Why can't I look this cute while shoving said chips & queso in my mouth?

I remember when Josie's mom called me back in February. She was curious about this "fashion show" Josie would be in. We talked for a while, she told me Josie was her only child. 1986, same age as me. They never did get Josie's diagnosis, she said it didn't matter. Back in the 80s genetic testing was rarely done. I sat and cried when we got off the phone, two girls. One who was late to every milestone, wouldn't drive, wouldn't marry... the other one who met all the milestones, learned to drive and got married. Both loved by their families, both happy,  both thriving, both overcoming the challenges of life with flying colors. So what really separates us? Nothing.

Arthrogryposis is 10 days away!! I wanna see my Facebook&Instagram light up blue for children with this condition. Let's join the cause and help raise awareness of this condition!!! This beautiful little lady is who I'll be wearing blue for. 
I love you shanell! ❤️💛💙💚 Arthrogryposis is a condition NOT a disease 
#specialneedsadvocate #niece #aunt #family #theyhavefeelingstoo #endthestigma #raiseawareness
I can't put into words how much this child means to me. Aunt Meg loves you so much princess!! #auntandniecetime #myniecesrock #shesmywholeworld #godchild #shedeservestheworld #specialneedsadvocate
I met this mom in the hallways of the hospital a day after Maddison's surgery. I could tell by the look on her face she was heartbroken and devastated her baby was also in a cast. I could tell it was her first time dealing with a baby in the hospital. Ive been there before, and it is scary the first time (I feel like I'm becoming a veteran though)
.
I felt so strongly I had been put in that exact place at that exact moment to reassure this mom that even though your baby is a little different than your friends babies, it doesn't make your baby any less valuable.
.
This is exactly why we have started our blog (link in profile) to share with people that different is okay. And you're going to be okay if your baby is a little different. We're just over here living our lives.

I have the raddest homies ever! Without them my life would be like-peanut butter with no jelly, ham with no burger, Kool Aid with no sugar, hot dog with no mustard!! #realhomies #friendship #blessed #specialneedsadvocate #specialneeds #autism #inkedgirls #changingthefaceofbeauty #vanessathemayor #california #disneyland #coolkids #inspire #downtowndisney
Another rad moment! Vanessa The Mayor was kinda freaked out by the water shooting up but she was willing to take a picture with her Homies! I love their friendship! They're simply the best!

I'm seriously so so proud of Vanessa The Mayor!! This is the first time she's rode the bus in YEARS!! She's not a fan of crowds so Disneyland is kinda overwhelming for her. We didn't tell her where we were going today. I told her we were going shopping and eating lunch so that she wouldn't freak out if I told her Disneyland. I brought her about 3 years ago but we didn't ride the buses. She did great and she loved it!

Take some time to enjoy the weather with a good friend today 🌞#growingtogether 
Happy Father’s Day to all you fathers.  I am certainly one blessed girl being born to one amazing father who helped lead the way to the amazing father I married.  I am one of the fortunate few who can say their parents are still married and in love with one another.  My dad has worked hard to be the man he wanted to be for his wife and kids and his efforts will have a ripple effect for many generations to come.  If it weren’t for my dad showing me what a husband and father should look like I have no idea where my life would be today.

That brings me to my husband, the man I thought I would never find.  The one I felt like I waited a lifetime for… Thank you for loving me and our boys with your whole heart.  Thank you for considering our happiness in everything you do.  Thank you for supporting all of us, protecting all of us, leading all of us.  I am so glad I am not a man, I wouldn’t want all of his responsibilities, but I am so glad you "man up" for us daily.  I could sing your praises for days upon days.  I hope you feel how much all 3 of us love you and need you.

Happy Father’s Day!

Blue is the color of the awareness ribbon for special needs and I am proud to be a strong advocate for children and people with special needs.

Slowly approaching, I was promote this till my fingers bleed. June 30th I wanna see my Facebook filled with posts of people wearing blue for arthrogryposis. 
Arthrogryposis multiplex congenital (AMC), or simply arthrogryposes, describes congenital joint contracture in two or more areas of the body. It derives its name from Greek, literally meaning "curving of joints" (arthron, "joint"; grȳpōsis, late Latin form of late Greek grūpōsis, "hooking").[1] Children born with one or more joint contractures have abnormal fibrosis of the muscle tissue causing muscle shortening, and therefore are unable to perform active extension and flexion in the affected joint or joints. 
My niece was born with this condition and she is the reason I'll be wearing blue on June 30th. Join me and help raise awareness on this condition. 
Arthrogryposis is a Condition NOT a disease. 
Aunt Meg loves you to the moon shanell. ❤️💙#specialneedsadvocate #myfamily #niece #godchild #myheart #shesmywholeworld #raiseawareness #theyhavefeelingstoo

Found a big downer to being this guys #parent. You can't go places "under the radar" and just blend in. You get called out for frequenting places. Like @costco . She said "weren't you here just the other day? I remember your baby." Um yes. Yes I was. Don't judge. I can't help it that @ghcretors is like an addiction. It's not my fault. It's the popcorns fault. 😜

When @simplicity_creative_group patterns go on sale at @hobbylobby you go through the whole book and pick your favs ( up to 10 lol) I love that even though Hannah can't speak to tell me what she loves and wants, she just throws her favorites in the cart and repeatedly points to her favorite outfits! I'll take it!

Working on my son's IEP today.....notice the oils?  Peace emotional blend because it soothes  my anxiety and Motivate blend because it keeps me awake enough to finish it. 😜. Actually it's turning out really well and I'm so grateful for all the collaboration I've gotten in it.  Anyone else doing IEP development for this next school year?? 🤔😃🌈🌸🌺. 👉USE Ōils💦💦👈 #momtrepreneur #mindset #autism #specialneeds #specialneedsmom #emotions #selfcare #doitall #specialneedsadvocate #autismawareness #executivefunction #brainscience #neuroscience #apple

This beautiful smart little girl deserves everything in the world.  I couldn't ask for a better person to call my family. She has so much love in her heart for everything/Everyone. you can do anything you set your mind to, you may do it differently than others do it, but nothing can hold you back. I am/always will be proud of whatever you do. I can't but into words the amount of love I carry in my heart for this child. I may not see you everyday, but I carry you in my thoughts always. #family #niece #auntiesbaby #amc #amcawareness #specialneedsadvocate #iloveaspecialneedsperson #nothingcanholdyouback #strongheart #love #beautifulsoul #myheart #alwaysinmyheart #auntandniece #godchild #illdowhatsbestforyoualways #mygoddaughterisbetterthanyours

Well it's official again, 30th is arthrogryposis day!! Help us raise awareness of this condition. 
Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita (AMC), or simply arthrogryposis, describes congenital joint contractures in two or more areas of the body. It derives its name from Greek, literally meaning "curving of joints" (arthron, "joint"; grȳpōsis, late Latin form of late Greek grūpōsis, "hooking")
Please we're blue on June 30th. I'll be wearing mine for my niece, Shanell, and for all the other people who are affected by this condition everyday.
