I am a 28 year old woman living in the great corn state! I have two children, 2 cats, 2 dogs, and a wonderful fiance. Although my life is overall very well balanced now, it has not always been this way. I have battled substance abuse, mental illness, homelessness, 7 years as a single mother, and nearly died twice. My two children are also children with "incisible" special needs. I wish to motivate and inform others through my experpiences.
