Sharing first hand personal experience of living life with a genetic condition
I am a health and wellness advocate for individuals with special needs and parents with special needs children.
I share our journey living with a genetic disorder my first hand personal experience while encouraging and offering heartfelt stories of hope for others.
My name is Amanda, I’m 35 years old, originally born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I met and married my husband who brought three wonderful children to our marriage,then we had Bella in 2007 who was diagonsed at birth with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (digeorge).
Mommies Quiet Place was born of my love of sharing parenting advice with my mommy friends.
Advocating part started when I connected with a group of awesome moms from Parent to Parent one day I was at a parent support group for people who have rare genetics, when a new mom was crying in frustration over her son needing a genetic test and had no idea what to test for what it means and how to go about a plan of action.
After I started sharing some of the experiences and hurdles with other moms in support groups I was encourage to write and share my story. They said it will help so many others and apprently it has.
I had overcome challanges as a step mom of 3 and raising my own child who has 22q as well as myself having 22q health related issues.
I knew I wanted to share the the tricks and tips I learned our family uses to cope with the world.
I am by no means the perfect mother.
I feel through my mistakes, hurdles and occasional triumphs, other mom’s will find that they are not alone!
I love reviewing products and seeing the amazing new things available for Mom’s and kids alike.
I hope that my reviews provide help to those in the market for a similar product or services
One day I decided to journal out my feelings thoughts and experiences and now 4 years later my blog is still going strong enough
I had to create my own website. I love connecting with other family's to share—the good, the bad and the unbelievably messy.
