Our Journey Raising Two Children with Special Needs
This blog chronicles our life raising two children, Nicholas 15, diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and Weston 18, diagnosed with Autism/Asperger's/ADHD. It's the ups, the downs, the joys, the sorrows and most importantly, the beauty of living a life less perfect, a life more meaningful.

Pete's Pet Peeve
"I was very upset," my husband explained to me. "If that were Weston or Nicholas in the vehicle, I would have been concerned for their lives."
Pete noted the license plate and called the transportation company from his cell phone.
"I am a concerned citizen," he explained to the woman on the phone. "I would like to report an erratic driver who is endangering passenger (and possibly children's) lives."
My typically mild-mannered husband was furious and intolerant of another individual whose actions put a child diagnosed with special needs at risk. Trust me when I say, it takes a lot to get my husband upset.
"I am glad I could help to advocate for this child, for I certainly would not be very happy if it was my child in that vehicle." Pete explained to the woman.
As Pete recounted his adventure to me, I think I fell in love with him just a little bit more.
