Introduction I am a mother of 3---two boys, ages 22 and 19, and a daughter, age 12. I have been married for 24 years. My daughter Janey was diagnosed at age 3 with autism, and she is the focus of my blog. I've created a Facebook group as a companion to this blog, as a place to be able to get to know all of you better! If you'd like to join, it's also called Rarer in Girls. I want to thank everyone who reads this blog. You help me get through every day.
