Today's talk at the 4th Annual TIHP Interprofessional Practice Conference discussing the challenges of navigating the system as a mother of a deaf child was heavy hearted and raw. But this smile is one of gratitude. I'm forever grateful for the opportunity to share my experience and offer policy and a strategic advice on ways to better support parents and caregivers of HOH & dDeaf kids in Ontario.

My reminder to slow down and enjoy even the smallest moments.

I feel like I’ve been living in a world of beige since I moved into my new place. I’m pretty sure it hasn’t been painted since the 80’s🕺🏼🕺🏼so it desparately needs a #facelift! I’m not great at picking colours, but decided to go with a soft gray after speaking with #powellpainting. I have a lot of colourful things that will look great against the neutral background. I’m looking for a colour to compliment a piece of art and this pretty little container. PS - I chose another colour and will share the before and after pics soon. #addcolourtoyourworld #painting #colourchoices #colour #addsomecokourtoyourworld #yvrblogger #blogger #bethedifference #truth #teachers #teacher #positivevibesonly #mindandheart #girltribe #jointhegirltribe #spiritjunkie #myunicornlife #motivation #inspiration #positivespin #positive #staypositive #lovethesewords #loveit #truedat #instagram #instagrammers #lovelikebutterflies

Every picture in this set makes me laugh uncontrollably These best friends are the epitome of Black and Indigenous solidarity. They have been holding hands and walking down one of the busiest streets in Toronto since they were able to walk. Some days even in the middle of winter they stop mid stride, hold both hands and dance. #bffgoals

I had to push back the launch of my practice and I'm so grateful for the people in my life who have been so gracious, patient and loving. In a city this big you wouldn't believe that the current wait times for Sexual Health and Therapeutic Support (SHTS) is well over 6 weeks. My wait list for clients is open and has already began to grow steadily. Theres a saying "nothing is done before its time" and it's due time I work on transforming my anxious heart into one which gives grace, space and tenderness to the one it beats to sustain. As the only Black, queer, trans*, SHTS practitioner in Toronto, I have an acute understanding of survial within the margins; and I couldnt be more excited to start up my practice and get this show on the road but first #selfcare . Keep your ear to the ground and eyes peeled for my launch date and opening celebration. #lovelikebutterflies

I understand the tendency of parents who want to lock their little girls away, I've heard the jokes about needing to buy a rifle, especially from parents who have survived abuse. I empathize because, even I have moments clouded by fear. It is in these moments that I feel the need to control every aspect of everything in my life and my children's. . But thats not, the mother I want to be or choose to be. It is my desire to raise my kids with freedom that allows respect and dignity to flourish. The autonomy to be adventurous and make mistakes and the wisdom to learn not only from their own mistakes but of others around them. And the knowledge that mommy will always love you. This is 10yr old Ocean, May she always be strong, resilient and free to be her truest self.

This is my dad, teaching my youngest how to swim. He was determined to survive cancer long enough to not only meet her but to also teach her to swim like he taught me. He faught hard for the moment you see in this picture and he continues to fight.

Yesterday my 1st born was in a vehicle that was in an accident with a city bus. . Shes fine and so are the other kids but as a mother I can tell you that my entire body went into a state of flight or fight and there was nothing anyone could say or do until she was physically in my arms. When I finally saw her though she was as calm as a cucumber. . Reflecting on yesterday reminded me of this picture #latergram While she's always the youngest racer by far, you'd never be able to tell from her confidence and determination. #notallheroeswearcapes #lovelikebutterflies #firstborn #lovemesomeher #proudmom

Every week until shes no longer gives enthusiastic consent to wear her #hearingaids we perform Sunday maintenance: disassemble her hearing aids into all it parts, clean and preform at home maintenance to help keep her hearings in optimal working conditions, adjust the length of her tubes, and add them to a drying beaker to remove an condensation, check and replace her batteries, tighten all the tiny screws then reassemble and test. As a first time parent of a deaf infant this process was wrought with anxiety and fear of losing or breaking one of the tiny parts but two years in and I now find process therapeutic. I do it with love and care knowing that she will likely have a great hearing week filled with #asl, her laughter, repeating new words in her deaf voice and dancing which is her favorite. Happy Monday brought to you by a prepared Sunday #sweetbabyella

Raising a deaf child is both eye opening and inspiring. I've learnt more about her thoughts, desires and needs in this first 26mths of her life than I've ever thought was possible. I'm grateful that she's a big communicator, and that she is not only self assured but clear on expressing what her love languages are. . This #tbt picture is from playing mas at last weeks children's carnival. Even in the crowds of thousands #sweetbabyella used her first language #asl to keep everyone aware of her needs and emotions. She wore her hearing aids to fully engage in every aspect of the bacchanal, so when the music said whine we whine and when it was time to palave that's exactly what she what she was doing with a big smile and a full heart. . . #lovelikebutterflies #torontocarnival #torontolife #deafculture #motherhood #toddler #the6ix #blackgirlmagic #toronto_insta

Mothering in the Movement mom Akio Maroon sums up our film’s raison d’être in one beautiful post (below). Revolutionary love, indeed. ✊🏾❤️🙏🏾 #motheringinthemovement ・・・ Repost @akiomaroon Black.Girl.Joy My whole life I've been taught to fight for freedom, for my rights to exist and to live a life worthy of the freedom fighters before me. Through school I've been taught the queen's English and a colonized history rewritten for and by men to make themselves great in the afterlife. But in times like these when Black joy has been criminalized and demonized. When Black laughter is deemed too rowdy for public space and Black dance too vulgar for the human race. Everything about Blackness is being comprised, categorized, policed, confined, stolen and repackaged; But not today. Today I'm taking a mental health day, a Black mental health day, where my only focus is on Black Joy: how to harness it, maintain it, and protect it. I wish there were more days like these.
