Sarah Kaczmarek

I am the 34-year-old mother of two girls -- age 2 and 6 -- and wife to a supportive husband named Lenny, who makes so much possible. I work 40+ hours a week at a job I truly enjoy. I am proud to say I am a working mother. I’m just not stay-at-home-mom material, and even though I work long hours and stay busy in the community, I love my family fiercely and have worked as Hadley’s advocate since the day she was born.

Writing is cathartic and gives me time to reflect and appreciate my family. I am not a doctor, psychiatrist, or an expert in ADHD. I am an honest and realistic mother who has a daughter recently diagnosed with attention deficit disorder. Some days are harder than others, but the successes make it all worthwhile.

Hadley continuously teaches me lessons. She has taught me to try new approaches, have a little fun, work on patience, and roll with the punches of life. This is easier said than done, especially for a Type-A mom who can be controlling, impatient, ambitious, competitive... Thank goodness for my ADHD little girl.
