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.

A Bitter Sweet Goodbye




After the overwhelming success of Nick's graduation ceremony,
we bid a warm and heartfelt good-bye to his special teachers.

But how do you say goodbye to a group of brave individuals who have made your son's life better, fuller and profoundly more meaningful?

How do you thank them for empowering him to be an important contributor to his class and to an entire school community?

How do you thank them for such a precious gift?

I do not believe it is possible.
