(memoir, special needs, personal growth) Life moves fast. Too fast for some people. This is the true story of what it’s like to live in a world where you can’t keep up. Bobby was ten months old when my mom and dad rescued him from birth parents who were slowly killing him. He was adopted into our family after a lengthy custody battle. Instead of that settling him, it set off a lifelong struggle to find a place to belong, a place to call home.
Like an old-fashioned merry-go-round, the world moved at a speed that was just too fast for Bobby. He couldn’t keep up, which prevented him from keeping a job, a roof over his head, and the basics needed to survive. The life he dreamt of was always out of reach. No one knew why. While cultural ideals of what a “normal” life looks like can distort our perspective, Chasing the Merry-Go-Round allows readers to see the world through the eyes of a person with intellectual and physical disabilities, which can often be invisible, especially at first glance. It’s a story about struggle and hope, survival and resilience, and most of all, the gift of acceptance and love.
Married at seventeen to her high-school sweetheart, Alex spent over four decades as a wife, mother, and business partner. Together, they raised three sons, gloried in grandchildren, and built a multi-million dollar business in which two of their children became principals.
Yet, along the way and behind the smiles there were secrets. No one knew how he berated her in private, his intimidating tempers, or the depth of Alex’s loneliness. No one, at least of all Alex, imagined that as the tinder of a thousand last straws burst into flames, it would be the power of desperation that finally compelled her to walk out, and deal with the guilt of having fractured a seemingly-perfect family.
Leaving You…for me is about heartbreak, healing and the author’s oftentimes hilarious journey of discovery through the perils and passion of first dates, lingering weekends, fantasies, and fetishes, as she also learns to savor the silences of being single. Perhaps some of her mistakes, even moments of panic, may scare you to stay put. But maybe her story will reassure you that if you hold on, learn to lean to the side when you need to hurl and remember to breathe, you can recapture your pride, find your smile, and begin a new adventure, whatever your age.

Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
