My name is Kristina Mulligan. I'm a wife to DJ and mama to Flynn. Our family lives in Hudson Valley, NY. I love crafting, listening to podcasts, and obsessing over true crime.
DJ and I met in 2005 when we were in seventh grade and always dreamed of getting married and what our someday family would be like. We were married in 2013 and were ready to start having children, but life had other plans. For three years, we went through procedure after procedure, attended appointment after appointment, and took countless pregnancy tests as we struggled with infertility. We were finally blessed with a pregnancy in 2016 through IUI, which gave us Flynn.
Flynn arrived into the world at twenty-eight weeks gestation, weighing just over two pounds and slightly over a foot long. After a lengthy NICU stay, we were launched into a world of specialists, therapists, Early Intervention, and the eventual diagnosis of periventricular leukomalacia and cerebral palsy. Since becoming a mom, I've used my superpowers for good, not evil, and have worked a lot with advocacy and raising awareness for disabilities, prematurity, and inclusion.
