I’m Amy Fields, mom and caregiver to two amazing special needs children we adopted out of foster care. My oldest has a rare genetic syndrome, Autism and Shaken Baby Syndrome. My youngest has Mitochondrial disease, a trach and vent, CP and is visually impaired.
I’m up and running 24/7. There is no down time or me time. My children require doctors, therapies, IEP meetings, individual support, and hours on the phone with insurance. It is exhausting and sometimes I forget just how to be plain mom. Respite would give me a chance to unwind and recharge.

I love to read and sit quietly with a cup of tea and just relax!
