About Me

My name is Amy and I’m mom to Brian and his 2 year old sister, Molly.  I’ve been married to my husband, Morgan, for 9 years now.  My husband is active duty Army, so we’ve lived in Germany, New York and have now returned to our hometown, Huntsville, Alabama.

Bri had struggles from the beginning and was late meeting developmental milestones.  His first diagnosis was a partial duplication on chromosome 16 (location 16p11.2), and that was followed by a diagnosis of autism in December 2009, at the age of 3.  Bri also has sensory processing disorder, epilepsy, pica, ADHD, hypotonia and is nonverbal.

    Amy, I am JD’s mother-in-law (married to Chris’ father), and am so thankful he introduced me to your blog! My son Evan was diagnosed with Lennox-Gestaut syndrome, which is mostly an otherwise undiagnosed combination of mental retardation, severe seizure disorder and usually some degree of autistic symptoms. Sadly, my Evan passed away almost 6 years ago at age 33. Thank you so much for bringing back to me the good memories of smiles, celebrating minor (MAJOR to us) milestones, and the awesome power of a mother’s love.

      Hi Debbie, I love Chris and JD and I’m so glad he shared my blog with you. I am so very sorry to hear about Evan. It breaks my heart to think about your loss. There is nothing like a mother’s love and I bet you gave Evan the most amazing 33 years! As you await results of tests, a diagnosis, answers, anything that can give you a direction to take to seek the best help for your child, you truly do have to celebrate even the smallest of victories!! I’m so happy to share our journey with you.
