Hi, I’m a homeschooling mom to 2 boys in Houston area. Besides balancing homeschooling and my nonprofit management company I was recently diagnosed with a bleeding disorder as well as my youngest son. Blessed Blood was written to encourage parents, especially mothers, of children with hemophilia. I know it can be physically, psychologically and emotionally tough to deal with such a diagnosis to new moms or women who have come to grips with their own diagnosis. However, despite feeling like hemophilia is a curse, it is important to realize our sons and/or selves have “blessed blood.” This lifelong condition does not define us, it is how God intricately and wonderfully designed us. We are actually blessed with blood that makes us rare and unique, with larger understanding and compassion of the world. We have “blessed blood.” I aim to have an attitude of gratitude although a condition as such is not for the light of hearts. It is tough, challenging and painful but we are blessed to have each other in this bleeding disorders community and it is VITAL to remind ourselves despite the hardships we are of BLESSED BLOOD.
I welcome all of my brothers and sisters washed in Christ’s blood to take my hand as a friend to call on and relate to. All mothers who have children with or without any type of chronic condition/ ailment deal with daily demands and expectations that can qualify any mom as a “Superwoman.” Join me on my journey of motherhood in search of love, laughter and hope.
