A seemingly DoomsDay Diagnosis turns to Purposeful Passion

A woman with big dreams gets thrown a major curveball which turns into her passion.


As a performer most of my life, I learned to be adaptable. No two days ever looked the same, and travel was the spice of my life for many years. I worked many survival jobs during the "dry" times and enjoyed freedom during the years of "plenty."


Motherhood in my mid-thirties brought an entirely new dynamic. My dreams to continue performing seemed to fade in the background. Especially when I received the news that my second child would most likely be born with Down Syndrome, at that moment in time, it felt like everything stopped. I didn't think I would ever do anything I enjoyed again.


Little did I know that my precious boy with an extra chromosome would launch me into an entirely new stratosphere of advocacy and awareness. What felt like the end of all things turned into the beginning of a beautiful new chapter. I spend my days encouraging moms within the disability community and fighting for change alongside those who are marginalized and discriminated against on macro and micro levels.


What felt like destruction has turned into passion, joy, and love like none other. My Jedidiah is wonderfully made JUST as he was formed. And my life is better for having been his mama!

Collapsible text is perfect for longer content like paragraphs and descriptions. It’s a great way to give people more information while keeping your layout clean. Link your text to anything, including an external website or a different page. You can set your text box to expand and collapse when people click, so they can read more or less info.
