Christine (Me) – I’m an all-around busy mom – seriously I never stop. To sum me up in one sentence: mom, wife, social worker, grant writer, autism advocate, blogger, writer, and busy. My two girls are both busy bodies and so much fun. I spent a lot of time coordinating Skylynn’s therapies and running from this appointment to that. I love my day job of Grant Writing because I get to write and its EXTREMELY flexible. My biggest passion right now is fighting for autism insurance reform in Utah. I love working towards this goal as the Vice President of Grassroots Advocacy for the Utah Autism Coalition.
--Likes: coffee, reading, writing, politics, advocacy, spending time with my family, and did I mention coffee?
Nate – Oh my wonderful husband. He is as busy as I am. He is an accountant, in a full time MBA program, and the Vice President of Finance for the Utah Autism Coalition. Whew. Between, work, school, homework, and my busy life we have resorted to staying up really late every night so we can spend time together, in the same room, without kids. He is the best daddy and my best friend and soul mate.
--Likes: beer, brewing beer, reading, politics, running, and food.
Skylynn – Oh my sweet Skylynn. She is the silliest, cutest, quirkiest 4 year old I know. She was diagnosed with classic autism a few months after her 2nd birthday. Now her days are filled with school, therapy, and fighting/playing with her baby sister. I love Skylynn with everything I am and will fight to the end of the earth for her. She is such an amazing little girl. I am lucky to call her my daughter.
--Likes: cupcakes, lollipops, spoons, puzzles, fiddlesticks, pigs, cooking, and her iPad.
Felicity – My adorable Felicity is almost a year old. She is toddling all over my house and bonking her head on everything. Her favorite person in the world is Skylynn and so she follows her around everywhere trying to be just like her. Felicity lights up my world every day. She is insanely sweet and adorable – and she knows it!
--Likes: everything Skylynn is doing, all of Skylynn’s toys, balls, pacifiers, walking, baths, and anything with a cord.
