Infusing Love: Through the Smoke

It’s been two months since wildfires ripped through Northern California leaving a path of destruction in Sonoma and Napa counties like I’ve never seen before and leaving a scar on all of our hearts. I got to see firsthand the importance of community and was proud to see our bleeding disorder community come together to […]

Infusing Love: The Thief of Joy

Some of the best sessions I have attended at conferences have been rap sessions. These sessions bring together certain sub-groups in the bleeding disorder community and allow them to have open conversations, asking questions and sharing information with each other. At one rap session, many years ago, a mom in the parents rap session, was […]

Infusing Love: A Season of Gratitude

I get some pretty stunned responses when I tell family and friends that I am grateful for hemophilia.  They can’t understand how it is possible that I can be thankful that my son, Thomas, has unexpected, ill-timed, and painful bleeds.  How could anyone find good in dealing with a nonsensical insurance company?  Obviously, I could […]

Infusing Love: Big Hearts

The past six months have been hard. Like hemophilia was managing us instead of us managing hemophilia. I can’t remember the amount of times I sobbed out of frustration, fear and being powerless to help my son. We are still muddling through and each day is a battle. A battle where it seems like we […]

Infusing Love: Opening Our Hearts & Home

When I got married 19 years ago, I never thought I would be a foster parent to over 40 children with special needs. It never occurred to me that I would have the blessing of being a stay-at-home mom for 14 years. I never would have thought I would end up with six forever children […]

Infusing Love: Caregiver to Caregiver

If you look up National Caregiver’s month on your computer, you will find several items from the Caregivers Action Network (CAN) before anything else. If you look through the stories, tips and suggestions you will see that most of them relate to adult children caring for parents. You can find the 2016 proclamation from President […]

Infusing Love: An Unexpected Lesson

I lost my job on a Monday. The following Tuesday, I was making the hour-long trek to our HTC for bi-monthly prophy for my 15 month old son, Ben. I had a lot of time to think about what had just happened, what in the world I was going to do, and where to go […]

Infusing Love: Watching An Advocate Bloom

My 11-year-old, Natalie, is not your typical 11-year-old. She is whip smart, savvy, and mature beyond her years. I suppose that comes with being the youngest of three siblings. You have to wise up when your older siblings are trying to pull one over on you since the day you were born. Natalie has recently […]

Infusing Love: Brotherly Bonds

It has taken me six years to groom the perfect person to give my youngest son, Laithan, his factor. When Laithan received his port my husband started out being Laithan’s holder and I could never transition him to the other side of the needle. I don’t think I wanted him to do it either, since […]

Infusing Love: In This Moment

It’s hard to envision what life is going to look like for my little Maddox when he enters preschool or elementary school in a few years. Right now I focus on the moment and each day as Maddox gets older. He had his first birthday last week and off he went. He took his first […]
