Our Journey Raising Two Children with Special Needs

This blog chronicles our life raising two children, Nicholas 14, diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and Weston 17, 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.

Still, There is Beauty

So often I get overwhelmed by the difficult aspects of raising a child diagnosed with Prader Willi Syndrome, the hunger, the behavior, the OCD, the seizures, the muscle weakness.

I do not take the time to celebrate all that is beautiful about my son, Nicholas.

So, today this post is all about the beauty of PWS...it is about what I love most about Nicholas.

I love his face.....



I love his warm heart and gentle spirit



I love how he embraces "the magic".

And sees the beauty in everyday things


I love how he can fall asleep almost anywhere

I love his curious nature and his need to explore everything!

He is a warm and loving soul


I love how he has taught me to see the beauty too....
