Welcome, and thank you for visiting me! I believe that in our daily, ever-changing lives, we need reminders of the importance to pause and appreciate all the good that surrounds us, while identifying and embracing reasons for the “bad.” Sometimes those reasons are unclear, sometimes they turn into blessings in disguise, and sometimes those bad things aren’t always as bad as we think they are. The families featured in Once Upon A Wish changed me and became my motivation to spread their hope and courage. They taught me how to face the “bad” and truly appreciate the good, and my goal is to reflect their messages of hope and optimism through my book, my blog, and my website. I would love for you to share with me and others what you personally learned or gained from reading these stories. Just click the “Share Your Story” tab above. You never know whose life you might touch by sharing your story.
