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.

Something Wonderful


When life is filled with too much trauma and drama, sometimes, amidst the pain, it can deliver something wonderful.
And suddenly everything is better.

Welcome to the world,
Sweet Baby James

This is my new nephew, James. He is the first child of my brother John and his soulmate Courtney. Little James was born a healthy 9 lbs. 11 oz. He is beautiful and very strong, lifting his head up the moment he was born! He is a calm and shining soul, bringing much happiness and healing energy to our family.
 
His arrival into this world was one of the highlights of my life.
 
I thank John and Courtney for offering me an opportunity to participate in this grand event, to be an unforgettable part of such a sacred experience. Mama Courtney is my hero. She navigated through Sweet Baby James' birth with her usual steadfast bravery and calm competence. She is a natural and loving new mother.
 
A birth in the family has a powerful way of putting things into perspective.
 
For me, my worries about Nicholas and school and the future are gone.
 
Unimportant really, when you think about it.
 
In the grand scheme of life......what does it matter?
 
I am thankful to have such life, love, family and friendship in my life.
