About Me

About me...hmm...this always seems a little awkward

Hi my name is Ruth I have been married to my hubby, Pete for 16 years now.  We have 5 kids (and no we are not crazy)
  • Devin - 16y/o ds
  • Keri - 13y/o dd
  • Grace - 9y/o dd
  • Hope - 6y/o dd
  • Faith - 3y/o dd
I have been through a lot in my life.  I have had a great life, with some unique experiences and some awful ones.  All of my past has brought me to become who I am today.  I wouldn't change anything that I have gone through, no matter how difficult it was.  I believe that what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger.  I believe in a strong family.  I work in a group home with some amazingly exceptional people.  My youngest daughter has a brain injury from birth. Some days the glass is half full while other days it is half empty.  I am learning to navigate the waters of special needs parenting.  My faith is growing all the time.  I have a lot of questions sometime.  I love to write and will one day write a book.  Not sure what it will be about yet. 

I love the chaos that I call our life.
