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!
