Trying to be a great Mom through the challenges.


Liam and Layla my munchkins.

This is Liam who made it through complications to be
born December 20th, my miracle.


Liam and Layla having fun.

I wish someone had given me a manual entitled 'How to raise Kids to be awesome human beings". Recently I've been troubled by the thoughts that I'm not spending enough quality time with my kids, am I striking the balance when it comes to discipline, am I loving my children despite their shortcomings and am I being a good mom.
Well I can tell you I have been very troubled by the possibility of Liam having Dyslexia, its hereditary and I'm not dealing well. He is due to assessed next week and I'm hoping he isn't. Why you ask, because I feel I'm not up to the work it will take. I desperately feel I have enough on my plate. Can anyone relate?

When I first held my children I had hopes and dreams for them, especially after having two miscarriages, now I feel incredible blessed by God to have them. I pray that I will not lose faith in my kids and be the gentle, loving mom I was designed to be. Now I have to deal with this possibility my son has a learn disability. I need to have a change of heart and mind and love Liam through it all and not compare him to other children. Isn't this what motherhood is all about...I feel secretly ashamed of my feelings and I know what I need to be to help Liam overcome. I guess I want my kid to awesome all by himself with little effort on my part, but it doesn't work like that; does it?

Anyway keep me in your prayers because I will need help as well to support Liam through this challenge. I don't want to mess my kid up for life. I desire to nurture him and help him to strive above the odds with a fighting spirit.

  2. I applaud you for your honesty as some people may not be so brave as to voice how they feel. I find that in life you really have got to just pray and trust God to get you through the tough siuations. It is not easy this life. I know. However, even if you have to go to God 50 million times a day for strength then do it because he really does give it to us. You can do ALL things through Christ that strenghtens you so be encouraged. I will keep you guys in my prayers and hope for the best! :o)

  4. I understand sister. Be strong. Do know that your Liam was fearfully and wonderfully made by God. His uniqueness, including his shortcomings , were place in him for God's divine purpose. We may not understand why God allows certain things, but be assured that everything works together for good, for those that love God and are called by his purpose. God bless you. By the way, my daughter's name is Layla too and she is 17 months
