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,
