When I married Russ in 1984, I delayed my career in  School Counseling  to  adopt  our two boys Cameron  (age 31) and Sean (age 30).  In 2009 we wove Brent (age 35) into our family.


After Sean was miraculously healed from his cancerous brain tumor as a baby, I started studying the brain and special needs. I have listed valuable Resources from my 30 years of research and my five years working as a Special Education Advocate.

My unique journey through a major health crisis, multiple miscarriages, faith struggles, adoption issues with my kids, my son's cancer as well as special needs issues has helped anchor my faith. My journey is the inspiration for this Sparkling Hope website, as well as my book, "The Song of My Hope, How You Can Travel From Despair to Hope: A Parent's Journey with Her Special Needs Children."  My Second Edition will be released in April.

  My hope is that you will discover what a treasure you and your               children are to God as you connect with me here at              Sparkling Hope.

When you walk this rocky journey with friends, it's so much easier! 


"We sparkle with His hope when we trust in Jesus

and live in the comfort of His refreshment and peace!"
