• About Jonah's Mom

    I believe in being a leader without title and always strive to do better. I am inspired by doing kind acts for others and believe in the power of intention. I don't give up just because I am told something can't be done. I ask why and strive to do the impossible. Hardships happen to all of us (everyone has a story) but I choose to look for the rainbow through the storm. I rely on my husband for support - he is my hero. Education is power and I strive to always learn more. I aim to live each day as if it is my last and choose to show people how I like to be treated. I say what I feel and aim to have the people I encounter leave better than they came. I love my career and do it because it is my passion. Because time flies when you enjoy what you do, I slow time down by being present in each moment. I choose to live now with no regrets of "should have". I enjoy life and the people in it.

    After a busy day yesterday, I woke up knowing immediately the plan for day twelve of my healing…silence.  It’s Jonah Wynn’s 6 month birthday today so when we arrived back in Halifax, I put everything on hold and took time out to treat myself to a warm bath.  I closed the door and began...

    My daughter Rion turns ten today.  I can’t believe how fast time has gone by.  It really seems like yesterday when I was admitted to the third floor in Seongnam Hospital, South Korea and although I couldn’t understand a word most of the staff were saying, felt so cared for by their outstanding and...
