Recently, Pediatric Home Service invited me to guest post on their blog, and I happily took them up on their offer. 🙂 The post was published yesterday; it begins:
Ten years ago, my daughter was born with cerebral palsy. The early years of her life were an emotional struggle, but around the time she turned four things got better.
Three years ago, I became a special needs mom for the second time when my son was born with Down syndrome. Since then, I’ve realized that those early years with my daughter prepped me in a way I could never have imagined.
In talking with other special needs moms, I’ve found that the lessons I learned are universal, and today I want to share them with you, the parent newly on the special needs pathway, in the hope it’ll make your road a little bit smoother.
