I quit my job

Monday, November 16, 2015      5 comments

The first time I met my stepson, Riley, I knew something was different. He was 20 months old and didn't talk or babble at all. The more time I spent, the more sure I was - He had severe delays and possibly autism. It was more than, "boys start t... Read more

I want to start this by saying that I am FINE! I am safe and my husband is safe. All kitties are accounted for and the bunnies are enjoying the view of their new pool from the second story of their bunny house. This morning I called in sic... Read more
