Sandy Scott had it all: A beautiful country home, a successful husband, and the freedom to be a stay-at-home mom.
Then the news crashed down on her like a Tsunami: her infant son Zachary not only had severe brain damage but probably wouldn’t live past his first birthday. As denial gave way to despair and grief, Sandy looked out over the new, strange world her family suddenly found themselves thrown into, and wondered if they would ever know happiness again.
But it was in the very challenges that Zachary’s condition presented to her that she discovered a whole new level of compassion among others as well as her own inner resources. She eventually took on greater roles in the disability community and found her calling as a life coach.

Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.
My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.
Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery
Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.
Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital
