Hello friends! I decided to run a Ragnar Relay with Steel Magnolia moms because I want to make other moms like me feel supported, loved, honored, and celebrated. When I was thrown into the deep end of parenting 9 years ago, I had no idea how lonely it would be to parent a child who struggled from the start. Harper's journey began with seizures, which thankfully stopped after 7 months old, but her life has not been easy and we continuously fight to give her the best opportunities to become who she is meant to be! My goal for both of my children is to help them to uncover their gifts and honor God with a life of using those gifts to love others.
Steel Magnolia Moms is a lifeline for moms of kids with special needs. I have met so many moms who have said "you too?" as we navigate our motherhood journeys. I have never met a more thoughtful and supportive group of women, who celebrate every inchstone (we celebrate the tiniest of victories) and dry tears with what seems like endless supplies of kleenex. My goal is to help this organization to expand its membership and support the members well, and by contributing you are doing just that.
