The Core of Parenting: Shared Experiences Enjoyed By All Parents

Being a parent is such an ominous activity. In one moment, a little person becomes the largest person in the world. When there is an “exceptionality” in a child’s development, that "difference” can become larger than everything else in a family’s life. Parenting a child with special needs is an enormous task, but that can be said of EVERY parent. By connecting to the core of being a parent and finding the experiences that are shared by every parent, there is an opportunity to feel more connected than apart.

  • Notice the miracles of development 
  • Find resources that replenish
  • Questions become conversations 
  • Fear does not have to define a life

Ability exists within the word "disability." Allow that part of the word to be louder.
