||Mom of 3 awesome children. 2 of my kids have a diagnosis of autism so I spend a lot of time learning, helping, and advocating for them. One child was unable to handle school any longer so am now homeschooling her. I have been married to my husband for 25 years (this May). He is the LOVE of my life!! I was a crisis counselor and Education Tech III as a career but have been at home for the past 6 years due to the disease Lupus (SLE). I was lucky cuz I was in remission for 6 years...many don't get that so I am thankful. I LOVE to laugh and joke all the time which is why I love Ellen! She makes me laugh and sometimes I use her stories on her show to make others laugh!! I have 2 dogs and 5 cats (all rescue pets) and they are our family!
