Tamara is a sucker for books and can sometimes be found awake at 2:00 am so that she can finish the book she was reading. Tamara likes kitchen gadgets, power tools, puttering around in her garden, zip-lining and hiking. Being a wife and mother is top on her priority list and she has been blessed with two typical kids and two kids on the autism spectrum. Bit by bit Tamara has learned to try to fit her spontaneous nature into the rigid schedule of children with autism.

Tamara loves singing, leading choirs, writing, and quiet moments after the kids are asleep. She has learned to depend on God as she faces whatever challenges that come.
