About Carter Family

Rape and abuse survivor, mother of special needs/autistic 20 plus yr old, mother of a combat medic. Both are Global Messengers for Special Olympics NC. Have gone through many traumatic events, countless medical issues and still have a ;) on my face and love in my heart. Volunteering is a part of my dna. Irish but chose to date out of my race and have had to deal with the narrow-minded ignorance of racism. Everyone has things we go through, telling my story may help someone get through theirs.

Who has a mom crush??

Are you guilty too? I think we all have these moments. You scroll and see someone with gorgeous hair, legs for days, boobs perfectly perky even after having the modern day equivalent of the Brady Bunch.
Oh well… we live, we learn, and we LAUGH!
Yummm now I want a cupcake  , and I can’t I […]

You know there are oodles of books on the market on how to raise children. You are told to do it this way or that way. This is the way your parents and grandparents did it. Then after having a special needs child you are under a microscope all the time. For us it […]

How many times can you thank someone for saving you?

My mother and my step father have been a huge part of our lives. They have been there for us throughout my life and the lives of my children multiple times. Yes, I admit that is a parents job. But even as an adult with my own children they were there for us more than […]

Just another day in my life…

By |May 9th, 2017|Family|0 Comments

My biological father and my mother divorced when I was two years old.  My father’s side of the family led what seemed to be a privileged life, as least more than the average family. They had those social-lite parties. My grandmother was a RN and my grandfather retired from the Army to work for […]

Good morning or afternoon where ever you are when you read this.

As I sit here drinking my beloved coffee and browse the many pages of the web I came upon a picture that I wanted to share with you.

 

Our scars are not the reminders of the abuse we suffered, they are the reminders on […]

To say or not to say…

One of his biggest fans

By |May 9th, 2017|Family|0 Comments

He was born August of 93 and she was born November 95 so a little over 2 years apart. All their lives I have been asked, Are they twins? No. Of course not. But their bond is one that I can’t explain. They have been together in even the most traumatic event like the […]

Not just biased….

By |May 9th, 2017|Family|0 Comments

I realize I am a mother and the parent tends to be somewhat biased when it comes to certain things. Today isn’t one of those days. My beautiful, intelligent,  compassionate daughter….. all she wants to do is care for people.
Yes she can be a bitch.  But come on what female […]

The Traitor?

By |May 9th, 2017|Family|0 Comments

The traitor. That’s the label set upon me because I chose to date out of my race. In the eyes of those that oppose of my relationships I am worse than those who I choose to date. Didn’t deserve the breath God gave me. I am ok with that. I realize I can’t please everyone […]
