Faithful, Not Successful – The spiritual practice of special needs parenting

I’m a Catholic wife and mother of six, all of whom are special (but some, like my son Oscar, are specialer than others). I live in Austin, TX, but I wish I lived in Lourdes. I love to write about faith, doubt, suffering, prayer, and really good books for all ages. I’m here to share the journey of parenting kids whose life paths don’t look picture-perfect — the joys and triumphs as well as the setbacks and heartaches.

Whether we meet with success or failure, let’s proclaim God’s love to the world.
