2016 was a hard year all around. But our comfort doesn’t come from this world — it comes from the love of Jesus Christ.
In a private special needs group I follow, the question was asked: “In unthinkable circumstances, should hope be offered?” Here are my thoughts.
I follow a wide range of people on Twitter – special needs parents and experts, individual programmers, as well as companies. I also follow a few joke accounts. A couple days ago, a tweet by @soveryawkward struck me to my core – “That awkward moment when you realize that sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
The dark underbelly of the special needs community is the dislike of the label of “special needs” itself. That, combined with the fact that many able-bodied people are writing and speaking for disabled people (both by professionals and caregivers), can be a recipe for disaster.
Losing the Affordable Care Act would be devastating. Without it, my daughter would most likely be dead.
For Christmas, Namine received a little microphone and stand. The stand was perfect for us to use in a little homemade physical therapy.
Namine told me about a decision she made about her upcoming recital.
When Jessica and I were collecting pictures for our talk at Marquette, we had the opportunity to compare a picture of Namine standing in the bathroom with pretty much the same thing from back in 2014.
Namine had a dental checkup today. The time for her jaw expansion draws ever closer, but not as close as we thought.
After being out for a few weeks, Namine enjoyed coming back to basketball practice.
