Each one of us is special. Our kids most definitely think we are. My 4 year old loves me “more than diggers, bulldozers, AND chocolate milk.” So, this right here tells me that I’m special. My 18 month old thinks it too, even though he can’t tell me. I can see it in his eyes and feel it when he smiles.
We all have special kids and special lives. To each their own and everything is about perspective. This is mine. My perspective on our life raising a special needs child as well as two other “typical” children.
I want to share with you our struggles as well as our triumphs. I want to share with you what exactly makes us special. This is not the life I had envisioned, but nonetheless, it’s OURS.
