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.

What Would You Have Said to Yourself the Day Your Child was Diagnosed?

Dear Readers,

One of my favorite bloggers, asked mothers and fathers of children diagnosed with special needs what they might have told themselves on the day of their child's diagnosis.

This beautiful video is a montage of these parents and their heart warming advice to others.

This inspiring piece was produced by my dear friend Elizabeth. I have never met her, but she is one of many special individuals whom I have befriended thanks to the world of blogging. Without these supportive parents (you too Debbi) and their blogs, I would be lost. They have provided much love, support and guidance to me and I am forever grateful to them!

Be sure to have a tissue handy when you view this video, and be sure to visit Elizabeth and her beautiful blog. She is a poet, a voracious reader, a spirited conversationalist, a fierce advocate, a sage, and a wonderful mother to 3 beautiful children.

What would you say?
