Our Story

If you don’t already know me, my name is Marie. I am a mother to a beautiful son called William, we currently reside in Kingston upon Hull with my partner Liam and our labrador Rusty ❤

I really struggled accepting that my child was different, I always envisioned having a ‘normal’ child but in the end what is normal anyway? William is far from normal; he is extraordinary but in the beginning things were difficult and I struggled find any resource and guidance, so I thought that I would start to document William’s journey; all the emotions, the research, the appointments and the heartache so that it may help the people that start their journey after ours.

If one other parent who is worried about their child missing milestones reads this and feels less alone in their journey then I have done something wonderful because I have been that person.
If one relative worried about how their family will cope with the unknown and needs to see other people in a similar situation, then this has been worth it.
If one person who just doesn’t quite understand reads this and is a little more educated, I know that I have done a wonderful thing.

Some of the things I write about are raw and are often posted during that wave of anger and upset that comes with uncertainty so please forgive me for any spelling mistakes or when the F Bomb slips out. 🙊
