Jamie Sumner is a writer for Parenting Special Needs Magazine and Scary Mommy and the mother of a son with cerebral palsy and twins. Her writing has also appeared in Literary Mama, Mom.me, Parent.co, Her View From Home, Mamalode, and Tribe. Her first book, Unbound: Finding Freedom from Unrealistic Expectations in Motherhood, was published by FaithWords in 2018. When she’s not writing you can find her outside in the sunshine with her kids, the dog, and a large cup of coffee.
At the end of the day, she agrees with Madeleine L’Engle:
“But unless we are creators we are not fully alive. What do I mean by creators? Not only artists, whose acts of creation are the obvious ones of working in paint of clay or words. Creativity is a way of living life, no matter our vocation or how we earn our living.”
