Welcome to the Baird Family! This coming July, my husband, Bill, and I will be married for 22 years. We have three children, two of them are on the Autism Spectrum. Our oldest child, Katie, is 19 years old and will be a sophomore at SUNY Geneseo college. She is a history, secondary education, and vocal performance major. Our middle child, Julia, is 17 years old and will be a senior and our youngest son, Andrew, is 14 years old and will be a freshman. Both my husband and I are middle school teachers. I took about 12 years off to be a stay at home mom and then got rehired as a special education and literacy teacher. My husband teaches American history. We love to travel and have taken the kids cross country visiting over a dozen national parks. We live in Webster, NY so typically we camp at state parks in the Adirondack and 1000 Island regions. We attend Holy Trinity Church, and have a wonderful pastor, Father Tim and retired priest, Father John. Raising two children with special needs, who are both very different has taught me a lot about surrender, humility, compassion, picking up my cross daily and laying down my life. Our home life has many unique challenges, but also many blessings. God has always put wonderful doctors and therapists who have walked beside us and guided us.
