A Letter to My Special Needs Child

We wanted to share this article posted by the CBC that highlights the lessons a mom of a special needs child. She notes

\”I wasn\’t prepared for your crinkle-nose smile, your flashes of brilliance (yes, brilliance, I\’m not at all biased) or your fits of spontaneous dancing and laughter. Nor was I prepared for all the fancy labels you would pick up during your nearly 10 years on earth. Autism. Attention deficit disorder. Oppositional defiance. Anxiety.\”

It is a beautiful article that shows the impact a child can have on a parent. In this case, the mother highlights that her lessons have included growing patience, strength and perspective.
