Have you experienced any benefits/positive experiences because of Felicity’s diagnosis?
Having a child is a complete positive experience and has made me a better person, even more so because of her special needs. 

What is your favorite alone time treat, to recharge your batteries?
I recharge by reading or just having alone time. Whether it be watching a favorite show by myself or shopping at the store. Mostly though I miss Felicity if I’m gone.

What advice would you give to people who have a loved one with a similar diagnosis to Felicity?
My advice for anyone who receives a diagnosis like Felicity’s is, it’s normal the way you’re feeling right now. It will pass and you realize you’re feeling this way due to all the expectations and fantasies you’ve had, but in reality what you have is so much better. We’ve all been there, just wait you’ll see how amazing it actually is. 

How would you describe Felicity in 3 words?
I’d describe Felicity as Smart, loving, and sassy!
