- being born with Turner Syndrome, a genetic condition that accounts for as many as 10 percent of all miscarriages. Yet, I am here. Though, one cannot be born with a genetic defect and live a completely normal life, and sometimes I have struggled to live among the "normal" people.
- living with brain cancer. Bam! One day I was well, the next day I was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. I now have a huge piece of a brain missing. Think of how frustrating it is when your computer doesn't work, and you will have some idea what it's like living with cancer.
- parenting an adopted child. Having Turner Syndrome comes with infertility, but I still wanted to be a parent, so my husband and I adopted a son. Although every child is a gift, adopting a child is bittersweet and complicated. My book will describe some of the hiccups and speed bumps we have encountered in our parenting adventure.
