I’m Randi, a native New Yorker, Stay-at-Home-Mom, homeschool teacher, and the creator of Surviving Mom Blog. I currently live in Atlanta with my husband, rambunctious 8-year-old daughter, 2 cats, and a very hyper dog.
A bit of backstory; writing has always been my outlet. At 8-years-old I organized and edited a children’s newspaper (unfortunately my fellow journalists were not as enthusiastic, and Kids Weekly was shut down for press after one issue). I turned to the power of pen on paper to help cope with the hardships that took place in my childhood, and I have been published in various websites. Writing has been my constant and helped me become the person and mother that I am today.
Surviving Mom Blog is about my own survival and healing at the hands of an abusive mother, as well as the struggles (and joys) of motherhood and relationships. I created this blog to bring words of encouragement to everyone’s individual journey.
I want to provide comfort and validation to others by sharing my experiences. I have a story to tell, and I want to support as many people as possible.
I hope you enjoy my posts and what I have to say, and that my words bring you comfort, occasional humor, and validation. I think it is important that we have a place where we can feel heard, understood, and welcomed.
This is a forum for wellness and growth in our relationships with others, as well as our relationship with ourselves. Let’s navigate this roller coaster of life together.
Please feel free to contact me to share your own story and struggles, or if you have any suggestions about what you’d like me to write.
