Author and Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant at Sleep Tight Tonight

Caryn Shender is honored and pleased to share her work and passions with other families.  In 2020, she became a first-time mom and her world changed forever. She finds her purpose in helping others, both personally as a mom, and professionally as an author and certified pediatric sleep consultant. For as long as she can remember, Caryn dreamed of helping others and making a difference has always been a driving force for her. Caryn lives with her husband, daughter, cat, and dog, all of whom give her inspiration and joy.

Author of My Scar is Beautiful

After her daughter was diagnosed with ALCAPA, an extremely rare CHD, she was inspired to write My Scar is Beautiful because she felt strongly that everyone, not just her daughter, should be proud of their scars. She found books with CHD stories or the cause of CHDs but none that encouraged or reminded readers of reasons to love their scar, so she wrote one. She hopes My Scar is Beautiful serves as a positive resource for anyone with a beautiful scar.

"Each sentence in this outstanding children's book is as beautifully crafted as the artwork that accompanies it. The author delivers a meaningful message with each page, empowering children to view their scar as a badge of honor. "My beautiful scar reminds me . . . I can survive any storm that comes my way." This book is not just for children. Teenagers and young adults could find strength in its concepts. It is not surprising to read that the author was inspired by traveling this journey with her own child."

"Caryn changed my life. Being able to sleep through the night allows me to be the best mother I can be for my son."
