I am a 29 year old woman, wife and mother. My husband and I were diagnosed during my pregnancy in 2007. I was raised in a middle class family and am well educated. In fact, I hold three college degrees and am currently pursuing my fourth. I am also a full-time professional, working for the state of Ohio.
Why Kate wants to be a part of A Girl Like Me: I would like to share my challenges, fears and accomplishments with other women who are experiencing similar situations. It is easy to feel so alone after being diagnosed and sometimes hard to remember that you are not. I want to encourage others and share my strives. I hope to let other women know that they can relate to someone who is walking the same path through life.
