Hello there! Hi, I’m Kirsty.

In case you have just stumbled here by accident I’m a *shudder* 41 year old married mother of three kids, two of whom had special needs.
I have a passion for honesty and truth (hence the name of my blog) and a real desire to support other special needs parents.
My About page gives you a glimpse into my busy, crazy world (and may make you feel better about yours!) while my Contact page gives you all the details you need to get in touch with me. I would love to hear from you 🙂
If you are a brand, PR company or business looking to work with me, head on over to my Advertising page for more details on how we can work together.
And if you are a special needs parent or interested finding out more about our experiences as a family living with autism or albinism, please check out my page dedicated to sharing a host of special needs resources.
So, I guess you’re considering whether to subscribe to my email list or not?

Here are four reasons why you should subscribe!

1. I am honest. The blog is called My Home Truths: Positive Special Needs Parenting for good reason. I share the highs and the lows of my life as a special needs parent. Feel free to message me anytime if you want to connect – I’m seriously an open book!
2. I am positive. My parents taught me that I can’t control life but I CAN control how I react and deal with it. So I choose to be proactive and positive. Hence the blog byline – Positive Special Needs Parenting. You’ll find tips. strategies and ideas for helping your kids AND helping yourself too.
3. I’ve been a special needs parent for over 13 years.  I’ve been doing this for a while and have learned a lot of things along the way. Feel free to click on some of the topics below to find out more about what I know:
