Julia and Jessica are two mothers that became parents at a very young age. They continue to navigate the trials of having children diagnosed with a variety of special abilities. They came together as friends in university and began to discuss their children and the struggles surrounding the process. Through this they became a support system for each other along each step of their children’s journey to diagnosis.
Jessica who is a mom of seven children, writes about her journey and struggles as a mother which provides an anecdotal look into her life.
Julia a mother of many talents has worked her way through advocating and helping other parents navigate through the process of community, educational and government supports. Always open to help others.
