Flaming Dragon๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ‰๐ŸŽข

Most people who get involved with me know that my life is really like a roller coaster. Iโ€™ve always liked roller coasters. Iโ€™m not completely sure why. The truth is they actually scare the hell out of me. I think itโ€™s because I like the thrill of life. Iโ€™m one of those people who says yes immediately and then gets on and screams the whole time. I really do like the feeling. Itโ€™s a rare bit of excitement and a great release.

A few months ago one of my kids told me that they felt like life is a roller coaster, too. I was momentarily stunned. I knew exactly what that feeling was like and I know it can be terrifying. It seems like itโ€™s either roller coaster or stuck.

Whoโ€™s controlling the speed of this thing?

First and foremost, I am a mother, but I am also an education lawyer and policy specialist, an advocate, and an activist. I've been told by my closest friends that I am a fighter. My practice area is disabilities and education, which is where I have been practicing since 1999, before I had my own kids who are now teenagers and are all educationally identified as twice exceptional. I write about what is on my mind, which feels like a messy file system of old and constantly new information. I think about my kids and the people they are and how to help them become who they want to be in this world. I write about issues that affect deaf people because one of my kids is deaf. I write about giftedness, autism, trauma, inclusion, mental health and chronic illness because those are all things that affect my family. I write about my own life and the people in it. I hope what I write touches peoples hearts and opens peopleโ€™s minds because I think people in our world need to have more understanding and compassion. I'm here to tell the straight up truth.
