Hi! I’m Melanie Oates, a full-time Business Intelligence Analyst and also a mom of 2 very special and unique set of twins. One has autism and the other has a very rare chromosome disorder (Chromosome 7 terminal deletion). I launched this site to share some of the day-to-day challenges and experiences that I face as a single parent. Some things you see may tickle your funny bone, while others are more on the serious side. I hope that some of my stories will encourage others and also educate folks on what it’s like raising special needs children.
