My degree in ‘Momology’

Hi, my name is Mary Wangerin.  I am a wife, a mother, an employee, and a scout leader.  I have a degree in biology from St. Olaf College, and I utilize my degree by being a transportation broker.  I don’t have any initials behind my name (masters or PhD).  What I do have is a degree in Momology. Yes, Momology, a degree in being a Mom whose child has “a diagnosis” that you live, study, speak and breathe with every day.

I live with the idiosyncrasies of his diagnosis, each and everyday, even when I would like to shut it off like a radio or TV.  What I want to share with you is not studies supported with facts and statistics, but what it is like to live with a child with a diagnosis.  The good, the bad, the funny, and the sad, the love and hate of what it is to be a parent of a child/children with a neurobiological diagnoses.
