Throwback Post: Sibshops With Birthdays and Library Days


October 3 2015:

Sibshop time for Thomas! Super big plus: Don Meyer is facilitating this one as it’s a demonstration Sibshop. I went through Sibshop training with Don facilitating a few years ago at UNR. I know Thomas is having a ball! He was sitting next to Don when I left. Oceans of gratitude to Diana Beeghly Rovetti and Nevada Center for Excellence in Disabilities for putting this together. This is Thomas’ 4th one and he loves being a part of them!!!

Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my Momma, Patty!! Being your daughter is one of my greatest treasures and one of my biggest opportunities for learning and growing. Love, Love, Love YOU! Hope you and Frank are having FUN!!! We miss having y’all just around the corner!! xoxo

Extra cool library day! We went to a library we’ve never visited!! So awesome, beautiful view, and we didn’t even get to look through all the books and movies. The lighting or something inside made Lillian sick to her stomach. Had to go really fast! She felt better once we got outside and headed home. We’ll have to go back and try again!

I am in awe of the things that happen when we reach a point in our growth where we finally open ourselves to receiving the good that we deserve and that is already ours!!! Keep on keeping on y’all … it’s worth it and YOU are worth it!!


You are a special woman like no other … I thank you with all my soul and being for ALWAYS being there for me and doing the best darn job you could in raising me! I LOVE YOU!!! Love, Camilla

Adventures in Happiness and Gratitude … Thomas and I are making Sicilian meatloaf, listening to jazz and blues …. Just simply enjoying life ….

Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday Dear Momma, Happy Birthday to You, And Many Moreeee!!!!!!!!!!! Today is my Momma’s Bday, Patty Romano. I’m truly blessed that you are my Mom and more grateful than I can even express for all your support and wisdom throughout my life and especially these past 4 years! Love you!

Throwback Post: Book Musings: Tibetan Tales for Little Buddhas


December 3 2015:

Another book that Team TLC really enjoyed … “Tibetan Tales for Little Buddhas”!

Simple, enchanting tales that give a glimpse into Tibetan culture, sharing inspiring wisdom relating to peace, gratitude and seeing with the heart. I was only going to read one per night. Thomas and Lilian loved it so much they did not want me to stop! We read all three in one night!

Thank you Manal Toppozada for having me come speak to your undergrad med class today at UNR again this semester. I so much enjoy giving students a parent’s view of advocacy for children with special needs and give them an opportunity to walk in our shoes, if only for a few minutes. This time they got the added benefit of seeing my eyes sweat when talking about receiving THE phone call … the one delivering the news when Lillian was 3 years old. Oops!! Guess I’m just in an eye sweating mood!!! Looking forward to next semester’s class! They ask such GREAT questions! xoxo


Trying my hand at dairy free eggnog … Tastes yummy so far!


I’m a wee bit late but here’s my Phantom Tea picture … Yummy sipping chocolate in the cute teacup I got in England back in 2000. This is The Registry’s annual fundraiser … if anyone would like to make a donation in Lillian’s name visit the website at http:\\ … Thanks tons y’all!
