This blog came about because of my beautiful boy, Rufus, who was born with Angelman Syndrome. I love writing but have never thought I had anything interesting or new to add to the blogosphere until he came along. It’s raw, it’s honest and it may occasionally sound like it could turn into a song, as I’m a songwriter at heart. I aim to only write about what I know and feel. I really want to avoid generalising about ‘special needs parenting’ as I feel each special need and learning disability brings its own beauties and beasts to the table. I will leave those blogs to other people. I hope that these blog posts unravel for the reader and for myself some layers of honesty and if I can reach at least one Angel family with a newly diagnosed child then my work is done.
Very occasionally, another subject entirely will grab me by the hand and ask to be written about.
