Noah’s Miracle

I am the mother to a child with special needs named Noah, who has spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy. After having to resign from my career of working for a Judge in District Court for 10 years to care for my son full time, it became my goal to assist, advise, consult and inspire other parents who had children with special needs. I am the sole administrator of the Facebook Page: A Very Special Needs Resource, Facebook Page: Noah's Miracle, and a special needs gifting companion group. I also maintain a blog about the journey of our lives with Noah that was started 5 years ago a few days after Noah's birth.
