New Networking Site for Special Needs Moms Launches


New Networking Site for Special Needs Moms Launches!

When we are young, many little girls dream about being Moms. How many children we want, if we want boys or girls, and talk about what we will name them.  However, how many of you dreamed about being the Mom of a special needs child?  Probably none of you, I know that thought never entered into my mind when I got pregnant. 

Nevertheless, that soon all changed for me when I was four months pregnant.  The ultrasound determined that my son had a heart abnormality that indicated the chances of him being diagnosed with Down Syndrome were a lot greater.

My life quickly changed on March 22, 2006, when I gave birth to my “special needs” son – Jacob.  How overwhelming were all the feelings I was experiencing.  I soon learned that his needs were now going to be my top priority.  I wanted him to have it all.  I was not going to use his “disability” as a reason that he could not try to led as normal of a life as possible.  I documented my journey with him and published my first book “Jacob’s Journal – My Journey Home” available online. 

As I juggle, the life of a special needs mom and a mom entrepreneur, I found there was a need in the special needs community for an all inclusive on-line support group, which focused on moms who have chosen to stay at home and juggle running a business or ones who may want to start a business, while caring for their special needs child.  Therefore, I created SpecialMompreneurs.  A Community that Empowers Special Needs Moms professionally and personally.
