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.

Who am I?

One of the things I love most about summer vacation is the opportunity it brings me to watch my children and their creative play antics.

As I mentioned in previous posts, Weston loves to pretend play. In the past, he has experimented with becoming, a juggernaut, a nonconformist and the scary guy from Scream.

Nicholas has not always been a willing participant. This summer, however, he has whole-heartedly embraced his role as the awestruck little brother and has donned the goofy gadgetry of make-believe madness.
