Welcome to our journey here at The Mom Kind. My name is Alicia Trautwein (the blogger behind the scenes). I am a mom of four children, all with different diagnosis including autism, adhd, aneixty, bipolar, depression, restless leg syndrome, & sleep apnea.
I never thought growing up, that I would one day become an advocate for special needs. After our two youngest were diagnosed with autism just a couple months a part, my life’s purpose was finally made clear to me. I found myself front and center in bringing awareness to autism and teaching neurodiversity. Then, just a year later our middle daughter also received an autism diagnosis!
In my initial search for information, I found very few sites sharing personal accounts of raising multiple children on the spectrum. With my desire to spread awareness and help other parents, The Mom Kind was born.
Parenting is an adventure in and of it’s self. I am blessed to have an amazing husband (Andy) to share this journey with. There is no way I could keep any form of sanity with out him by my side! Together we are learning the ropes of parenting four children, all at vary different stages of their lives!
The Mom Kind is a site dedicated to parents of neurodiverse families. We cover topics that educate, encourage, involve, and sometimes just give you a great laugh!
