Welcome! I am Val. My adult daughter Jess and I live together and have a loving and fun relationship. We love sharing our daily adventures, travels, struggles, and the strong loving village that surrounds us.
– Special Needs Focused Exclusive Content and Live Interaction
– Videos geared toward entertainment and inspiration
– A place for Special Needs Parents, Caregivers, and Educators to chat
WHY I SET UP A MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM
I made the decision to set up a membership platform after I had multiple people reach out to me asking how they can help support our ongoing work. A sustainable income is a must for me to be able to continue creating this valued content. Like everyone else, I have to pay my bills.
With a sustainable income, I can devote ‘work hours’ to doing structured activities with Jess and making awesome new content for our #goodonesfam. Our goal is to increase and improve upon the joy, hope, encouragement, and entertainment that Jess and I provide to others.
Our goals include the following:
- Day In The Life Videos
- Cooking with Jess Videos
- Regularly Scheduled Community Outing Videos
- Dealing with the hard parts Videos
- Address Self-Care Topics – Val
- Address Self-Care Topics – Jess
- Paint with Jess
- Work on Braille and Education with Jess
You will find stories of family support, hope, and encouragement. My biggest goal has been to take some of the mystery out of what it will be like when special needs children become special needs adults. Mainly, I want to let others know that this life can be good – fulfilling and rewarding.
For the past few years, I have spent endless hours recording video, editing, writing, and sharing. The reason I do it is simple. It’s because I love sharing my ‘Bessie’ with the world. Knowing that she makes such a difference in so many lives is absolutely wonderful. Feedback from our followers reinforces the importance and impact of our efforts. I have received so many comments regarding how we have shared important messages, taught important lessons, and inspired people. We have even been credited with saving lives.
When you join me as a member, you are entering our inner circle. You will receive tier specific benefits starting with shout outs and exclusive lives, then adding chat room access, behind the scenes content, and on up to first dibs on original art, signed copies of Jessica’s art, and then the super duper bonus – FaceTime with Jess.
Thank you so much for supporting us as we do our best to support you! It means so much to us that you’re a part of this journey to change people’s lives. We want to share joy and inspiration while also helping families gain insight and awareness of what everyday life experiences can be. This is our life – everyday. It is our version of normal, and it is good.
