I’m Cat and I’m a simple girl with an optimistic soul. For the first time in my life, I know what’s really important. I’ve been the princess in a white dress in an “American Dream” wedding. I’ve lived in the big suburban house with the white picket fence and everything I thought I could ever want. I’ve also known what it’s like to discover an unexpected reality, and to be dragged– kicking, screaming, fighting– down a completely different life path.
I have found–reluctantly at first– immense joy in being the mother of a special needs child. I have finally embraced– with quite a bit of initial chafing and questioning– my natural sexual orientation. And I have become more closely aligned with my true self than ever before.
I write to celebrate this journey and to share it with you. I welcome your thoughts & questions. Please leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
