Founder's Story ~ Annette M. Hines

Parent, Speaker, Author, Attorney, Advocate, Coach

I always tell people that first and foremost, I am a mother of two daughters, one of whom passed away from mitochondrial disease in 2013. This deep, personal understanding of special needs fuels my passion for quality special needs planning and advocacy. My daughter Elizabeth was profoundly impacted by her healthcare needs and disabilities, and I share about my family's experiences with her journey through this course and in my memoir, Butterflies and Second Chances to provide you with hope and consolation that you are not alone.

In addition, I have over twenty years of experience as an attorney and advocate in the areas of Special Needs, Elder Law, and Estate Planning. I oversee two organizations in my home state of Massachusetts, but work with families nationwide and have extensive experience with federal services. I'm also the host of the weekly Parenting Impossible – The Special Needs Survival Podcast.

I started these programs to create another way of bringing information, resources, and services to our disability community all over the country. These resources are exactly what I wished for when my family was young.

I'm so glad you're here!

See what others have to say:


“I feel more positive and prepared after completing this program. Annette's guidance made me more comfortable and hopeful. There is true sincerity in helping people figure this out. The compassion Annette has is evident."

"Attorney Hines is so thorough and knowledgeable about every aspect of special needs transitions and planning. Her class is as beneficial for parents who are just starting the journey as it is for those practicing in the field."


“I think it’s important to not go it alone. It’s best to know what options exist for parents. This program gave me a better idea of what could be possible and the direction I need to go to get there.”

Why put off creating a clear plan for your family and disabled loved one's future?
