Dena Russell - New Jersey Special Needs writer
I could sit and write a small biography of my life for you - but the truth is my life never really started until the birth of my beautiful boys, Keith & Ryan. Life drastically changed for me in 2005, as the two most amazing babies came into this world and changed my life forever. Long forgotten were the days of working with inmates at a Federal Correctional Institution, being a participant in an unhappy marriage, and dealing with the everyday negativity of life! When my children were both diagnosed with Autism Specttrum Disorder & ADHD, I embraced the positive aspects of life and made it my mission to make them experience the most fulfilled life possible. Born and raised in Hoboken, I have started the Hoboken Special Needs Parent Group so my children will be able to grow up in my hometown with all of the same opportunities I had. I am so grateful that Mommy Poppins is allowing me to share my experiences and my knowledge with all of you!!
