You never know how strong you are…

You never know how strong you are…

Just before my daughter’s cleft palate surgery (in 2016), I saw a card with the quote:

 You never know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have.

 That became my theme during my daughter’s surgery and recovery. It continued at a theme, with the discovery that my daughter needed hearing aids too. But I didn’t want to just be strong for myself and my daughter. I wanted to be a light in the darkness and bring hope to other families.

Then, when I couldn’t find a comfortable, affordable headband to hold my daughter’s hearing aid, I decided to become the solution which I was seeking.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

Through that I discovered the joy of bringing light and hope to other families, by providing cute, comfortable, affordable headbands which our children love to wear!

Turning a fun hobby into a successful business also led to a Shift in my Confidence

So, in hind-sight, my theme for the past couple years has been something like: 

When life gives you lemons, choose to be light in the darkness. Make lemonade to give hope to others. In the process, you will discover just how strong you really are.

I spend my time making Custom Softbands and Accessories for Ponto, AdHear and Baha hearing devices. I am also a published author. I wanted our daughter to see herself represented in a story - a little girl who has facial differences and wears BAHA hearing aids. The book grew to include some of our friends who are all so wonderfully different. My first book, “Wonderfully Different, Wonderfully Me” features a diverse group of children and celebrates each child’s unique strengths. All children can see themselves in at least one of the characters, whether they look similar, or have the same interests or personality. "Wonderfully Different, Wonderfully Me" is the children's book that belongs in every household and classroom, to promote inclusion, acceptance, and friendship. Order your copt at:
