***As much as I was hoping to keep up with this site in order to help other parents going through the same journey, I just haven't been able to keep it updated. My second son was diagnosed with Apraxia when he turned 2 years old. And I have also had another child. So, between taking care of four kids, homeschooling the oldest, and running two boys to multiple speech appointments during the week....I do my best to keep up with all that. ;) I have been able to find time to contribute to another apraxia blog. One of the first blogs I ever read about apraxia. Please head over to Jake's Journey and check out several Apraxia Warrior moms bloggin about their amazing children. 1/14/2015***
In January 2012, I first heard the words "Childhood Apraxia of Speech." I had no idea what it meant. I immediately started my search....a search that hasn't ended. One of the first things that helped me in my journey for knowledge was reading blogs written by other parents that were going through, or had been through, the same journey. As I write this, it has been a year since I began my search. I have decided that I would like to start documenting what we have been through in case it can be of help or encouragement to others. I have been wanting to do this for some time, but I felt intimidated because I don't think of myself as a writer. I read other blogs, and their words just flow seamlessly. I type more from the exact thoughts in my head, so it often comes out jumbled and rambling on. But the past few weeks, I have been in contact with several mothers that are going through the same experience, and they have asked me for advice....and I think some of my advice really helped them. That makes me SOOOOO happy! So I decided I would blog because the mothers that would be seeking my blog aren't looking for an eloquently written novel. They are just wanting to find someone that "gets it." And I definitely get it.
If just one person can benefit from this blog, then my heart will be happy. :)
