Beacons of Hope, and Help

Nobody plans on having a child with special needs (well, except those very few who have hearts of pure gold that adopt one of these blessings).  For the majority of us, these little gifts from God just fall in our laps.  We are unsuspecting, blind-sided.  In the blink of an eye we are transformed into advocates, protectors (in a way only parents with these blessings can understand), the minority.  We join an elite club of other families who have been trusted by God with one of his most innocent... his saints.  Often though we feel so alone.  As if there we are in a life boat, our emergency light flashing, drifting in the sea with no help in sight.

In the 6 short months I have had my platinum membership in this elite group, I have been faced with many challenges in the practicle everyday life.  How do I organize all of these supplies?  What is MDCP and CCP?  How do I advocate for ____?  Home blend... what's that?  What about school?

Enter "Our special blessing."  I want this blog to be a place where we can share our advice, our experience, introduce our blessings to other families.  Be that beacon of hope to others who feel so alone, drifting on the sea of information.  Please join in this ministry with me!  E-mail me with your practicle tips for this life.  Let me feature your special child so others can see he is not a patient, or a sick kid... he is a blessing.  I look forward to sharing with you all!

In Jesus,


  1. What a wonderful idea for sharing! I never knew I would know these things either. What a shock it was to be so trusted by God to get an angel in my arms that needed me more than anything in the world and her (literal) survival was thrust into my hands. I thank God for her every day...even though I may curse the system and the hoops we have to jump through to get the care she needs. I know your special angel will bless you more than you can ever imagine.

    1. Amber,
      I so look forward to hearing your expertise and experience! Also, I can't wait to "meet" your little one. If you have time, or ever want to, please feel free to share via e-mail and I'll post it up here. Thanks!

  2. Awesome! Love it! I'll get something together for ya.

    Be blessed
