Why Fumbling About In the Dark?

Because Stumbling About in the Dark was already taken. Next question.

Stumbling, fumbling, and mumbling best describes my experience as a mom of a special needs kid. Especially describes trying to get services for our older daughter and trying to navigate the IEP process.

These posts might end up being edited a lot. I expect that I will be needing to process old anger and grief. So strap on your seatbelts. Might be a bumpy ride.


  1. Just found your blog and am really enjoying it. I totally agree with your Erma Bombeck assessment....most moms I know who have kid with needs are strong, but some just....aren't. I do fear for their kids. Luckily you are one of the strong ones. I am adding you to my bloglist so I can continue to read.

  2. Thanks, Sug.

    Yes, I am one of the strong ones, but by the end of the week I am just wiped out.

    I am being encouraged to write a book. I just started this yesterday. I hope I can keep up the pace. It's hamster wheel in some ways, but in other ways it's just flowing naturally.
