I am having a hard time picking one to write about. I am going to write about #4-Something I am passionate about. I am passionate about a few things but the main one is probably trying to teach others about MS. I just want to bring awareness to the disease in hopes that people are getting diagnosed they aren’t alone. I know when I was diagnosed I was scared to death and what made it worse was there was no one around my age that had the disease. I am finally getting to the point where people my age are getting it. i just want people know be able to get the support that I found lacking when it come to MS and even other invisible illnesses.
I am also really passionate about raising awareness about adoption but more importantly I want to get help for the birth mothers that are left out in the cold. I wish people could see the great things these women and be their for them but usually birth mom’s end up getting judged because of what we choice to do with our children. For those that may not know I am a birth mom. I placed my daughter for adoption almost 6 years ago now. Since then I have found that there aren’t places for birth parents to go and get support when they are having hard days. I have started a blog and Facebook page for birth moms. I am also considering starting a support group in the Salt Lake City area for birth moms but I am not sure how to go about starting that.
Anyways those are 2 of the things that I am passionate about. There a few more but those two are on very top of the list.
