About Me

Hey everyone, I am Hailey and  I am the mother of 3 boys. Coleby is 9. Jaek is 5 and Wiley is 2.

Coleby was born with complex special needs. His diagnoses is Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, Cerebral Palsy, Austism, Hypothyroidism, Hypopituitary and Developmental Delay. He loves school, attends respite fortnightly and goes horse riding with his school.

Jaek is a very smart and caring little boy. The amount of time that he has for Coleby makes my heart melt! Jaek started Kindergarten this year (2017) and is excelling in leaps and bounds. This year is Jaek’s first year at soccer and he is going really well.

Wiley is my “devil child”. I mean that in the nicest way possible. If there is something that he is not meant to be doing, touching, eating, climbing on etc. he is doing it. He is just about to turn 3 and start Preschool. Wiley also plays soccer.

During the past 9 years I have had a lot of ups and a lot of downs. Sometimes the downs outweighed the ups. But at the end of the day we achieve what we set out to achieve.

The reason I created this site was to help people like yourself realize that you are not alone on your journey with raising a special needs child and that there are many things out there that could help and support you with your journey. To do this, I am going to share my personal experiences with you and what I have discovered over the years through my own “trial and error” experiments with raising my own special needs child.

I also ask that if I ever say anything that captures your interest, that you get involved within my site. I love to talk about what is new, tips and suggestions that you may have tried that could help others and if you have anything interesting that you want to share or any opinions of any of the content I have created on my site, please do speak up. I love feedback in every form.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,




  1. Hi Hailey
    Your boys are lovely and you should be so proud of being able to take care of them and find the time to help others.
    I have 3 children and they are a handful without having special needs so I am sure you have your work cut out, although it is the best work ever is it not.
    I have friends who have children with autism so I will remember you when I speak to them so they can connect with you if ok.
    I wish you all the best with your wonderful little family.

    • Hi Rosie

      Your Right! 3 Children is definitely a challenge at times.

      That would be great to connect with them! It’s always good to hear other mothers stories and things that they have tried or are trying with their child. I am hoping to build a network where mothers can come together and talk to other mothers to get support!

      Thanks so much for coming by!

      Hope all is well with your family!

      Good luck and best wishes 



  2. Wow!! What a story. My heart goes out to you. I can’t even begin to imagine what you’ve been through. I believe we all have struggles and we’re never given more than we can handle but we sure are pushed to the edge sometimes.
    I wish you all the best with your continued journey.

    • Thank you so much for your kind words!
      Life isn’t meant to be easy and sometimes it does get very difficult and I ponder the ultimate question “are we ever going to get a break” but at the end of the day we are a strong and we will get through anything that is put in front of us!
      Thanks so much again for stopping by!
      Good luck and best wishes to you for the future!
      Regards Hailey

  3. I understand Hailey what you are going through, because I have a son who has autism and he is 20 years old. I must say that you have three handsome boys and the other two are going to have so much love for their brother and they will protect him because that is how my children are with their brother. You seem to be doing an amazing job with Coleby. Continue being the strong mother that you are and remember “we are not alone”.

    • Hi Brenda

      Thanks for visiting my site!

      Wow, a 20 year old! I really commend you too! Coleby is only 9 and we have gone through so much and your son is 20!

      My 3 boys are very close and I can see what you mean by being protective! They are always there for Coleby and I hope it continues as they grow up!

      Yes that is it! We are not alone and I plan to raise this awareness in an effort to bring others out and help them through the difficult times!

      Thanks again for visiting my site! Wish you and your family nothing but the best for the future!
