My Story, God's Testimony

I had been working in the field of behavioral health as a Behavior Specialist for 10 years before our youngest son Jaxon was born. We were aware of a developmental delay with Jaxon from the time he was born but then at 7 months, he was hospitalized with bacterial meningitis of the brain, slowing his development and eventually contributing to a formal autism diagnosis. These pictures are a small glimpse of that journey but if you want to read more about my testimony with him, God and the journey to where we are today, check out the link below.

Today, Jaxon is a thriving child who not only is learning to manage his diagnosis but also who knows that both God and his family love him.
