Life is made up of many pieces, like a puzzle. Here I attempt to put them all together.

Rose's House Introduction

My name is Rose and I am the mother of three wonderful kids-Austin age 12, Amanda age 10, and Michael age 2. I home school the kids and thoroughly enjoy it. I also do foster care and operate a family day childcare center from my home. I am soon to be married to my wonderful fiance, Doug.
This blog is a way for me to chronicle and share the various up and downs, big moments and small (is there any difference?) in our journey.
Because of the variety and number of people that I am daily involved with some of the names and identifying characteristics have been changed, however the stories are true.
We all have a story to share and I am looking forward to sharing ours with you. Your comments and insights are welcome.

  1. Hi Rose, this is Jared Alexander. I am 27 years old and I have autism. I live in Shenandoah, Iowa at Forest Park Manor. I'm a fan of geography and I am a good speller. I wrote a story on called, "The Comeback Kids." It's about a youth football team in Chicago being coached by a female social worker. She turns the team from losers to winners in one season. It's 37 pages long. Go to and go to the Marketplace. Type "The Comeback Kids" by Jared Alexander at the Marketplace to see for yourself. You can comment on my story when you get this. Thank You and I'll be blogging on this page from time to time.
