My soul food reading list…

My soul food listening list…



My laugh or cry list…you know you have a special needs child when...


  • your kid’s medical file is held inside several 3 ring binders 
  • the doctors at the ER know you by name
  • friends don’t ask you to watch their children – because they’re afraid they’ll have to return the favor!


faux pas… 

  • being overly nice to my kid 
  • ignoring my kid
  • treating my kid like there’s nothing wrong
  • Yes, that’s right you CAN’T win! 
  • Sorry, but I’m the crazy mom of a SNC – are you uncomfortable yet?


The sunny side of Having a Special Needs child…

  • a SNC is a bad-friend filter 
  • you get to take vacations to many big & exciting cities – like Boston (Children’s that is…) 
  • you begin to understand the essence of unconditional love and strive to give it
  • in this sometimes dark place you are able to more vividly see Christ’s face & God’s fingerprints





“I’ve spent too long wanting what was taken from me 
and not what I was given…” 
Caspian, Voyage of the Dawntreader [film; 2010] 


“Go as far as you can see;
When you get there, you’ll be able to see further” 
 — Thomas Carlyle
