My name is Lori Fulk, and it should be said up-front: I used to have very big plans. I was in my 30’s and happily ensconced in a Neuroscience Research career when I met a funny, smart guy, and married him. We could have stopped there, and stuck with our “very big plans”, but God has some plans of his own. We now have 2 gifted daughters, 1 who is “twice-gifted”, which is a fancy way of saying some gifted kids are born with Special Needs. It makes for one crazy game of Poker, I assure you. And because humor is my first-line drug of choice, I started writing (and laughing) about our family’s journey 8 years ago. Parenting has taught me many things, but the most important being we all have ideas about being parents, until the actual birth of our children. Wisdom in parenting doesn’t come quickly, and it certainly doesn’t come easily. Wisdom Comes Suddenly.
