Hi, my name is Jolene Philo. I am in love with words, so writing is a way to share them. Couple that love with my life experiences as the daughter of a disabled father and the mother of a son born with a life-threatening birth defect, and writing about special needs was a natural progression.

Encouraging parents of kids with special needs and helping them find the resources and support they need is my passion. Between writing books and blogging, I meet the most amazing parents. Being part of their community is a delight and a challenge!
