  1. Hi Rachel! What a wonderful topic. I know this will help so many moms. Excited to follow along.

    1. So glad to meet you, Jessica--glad to have you follow along! =)

  2. I look forward to reading more. My youngest has special needs and it's always great to see how others are doing on their journey.

    1. Yes, I think we can learn so much from one another as we walk similar journeys. Glad to have you follow along! =)

  3. Glad to see this topic, which is close to my heart as well. I have 2 sons with special needs, which I am blessed with but at times gets so challenging for me, since I am at home with them everyday. There is never enough support and education that us mothers can give to one another. I am also doing a series but mine is on raising a large family in today economy. Feel free to stop and say hi.

    Look forwards to reading and getting to know you more. :)

    1. Nice to meet you! Thanks for taking the time to stop by, and I hope the series will be a blessing to you.

      Enjoyed stopping by your blog as well, and following your series. =)
