When Aaron was 8 months old I became a single parent, I won't go into the details here but needles to say it came as a shock to me. I have to say I stumbled through life for about a year and then I had decided I needed to pull up my panites and get on with life for Aaron's sake. It was only a few months later that Aaron got his ASD diagnosis and life changed again for me. He was now being inrolled in the ABA program at Eastern Health, our local health care board, which meant home therapy and someone, ie me, being at home for thirty hours a week while he was in therapy. So my plan for Aaron going to daycare and me going back to work went out the window. I love my son to death but being at home pretty much by myself all day and night was driving me crazy so I had to do something where I could interact with other people. I decided to look into direct sales companies, I knew about Partylite, Pampered Chef and Tupperware but none of those really suited me I also knew about Stampin Up and Creative Memories because I had been scrapbooking for abt 6 years then. Creative Memories didn't suit my scrapbooking style although I love their tools, I knew someone who sold Stampin Up so I didn't want to join them. Then I remembered going to a party a few years back in Nova Scotia for another company and after some research I found Close to My Heart.
