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.

Ode to Mr. P

Mr. P has been Nick's homeroom and general ed teacher for two years.

He has been like a guardian to Nicholas, ensuring he is a supported and included member of this 6th grade class. We will be forever grateful to him for the kindness and support he has given us.

You may recall his important contribution to Nick's unusual graduation ceremony last year. You can read more about that eventful day here.

Today, he is running in the first wave of the119th Boston Marathon.

We are sending him our heartfelt support and best wishes for a successful run.

Godspeed to you today John, you are our hero.


Good luck to all of the runners in today's Boston Marathon.

Today we remember and honor:
