My name is Amanda Reinhart and I’m the newest Admin to the Our Loving Children blog!
I’m going to tell you all a little about myself and over the next couple of days I’ll tell you about my kids and our journey so far. 🙂
I grew up in Mason City with a twin sister and younger brother. As a teenager I volunteered at Washington Early Childhood Center. It was my first hands on experience of what it would be like to be a teacher or teacher’s aide, and my first time working with children with Autism and other special needs. From then on I knew i wanted to work with children.
I am a single mom to two wonderful boys! Their names are Daniel who is 10 and Samuel who is 5. You’ll learn more about them in a couple days! They both have their own set of special needs. My children are my world, my life, my everything.
This fall I intend to go back to college! I want to take a sign language class, along with some teaching classes. I’m also trying to decide if I’m going finish my Medical assistant degree first or double major. Decisions.
I’ve been a volunteer for Our Loving Children for just about a year now and I love it. Daniel and Samuel get to volunteer with me and it’s great to give back to an organization that does so much for our community.
My kids and I have a cat named Periwinkle but we call her Peri. She got her name for her eye color and because we wanted to be able to say “hey, where’s Peri?”. For those not familiar that saying is from Phineas and Ferb a Disney channel cartoon my kids and I enjoy. We also have a now 15 year old dog named Annabelle. We rescued her in January of 2017. She’s been an amazing addition to our family and I am so glad we could rescue her.
I like to describe myself best as Mom, Advocate, and Volunteer. You’ll get to know more about me and my family as I continue to post to the blog!
Have a wonderful day everyone!!
