I have so much to share. As usual, I'm behind on the blog. What happened to posting every day? Yeah. Not so much.
Tonight we had the privilege of sharing our family's story with our special needs group.
Our what? Yeah, I haven't shared about that-but I will.
Our group is devoting the first 15 minutes of each meeting to focusing on a particular family. We paved the way tonight, sharing our family's story first. It has been quite a while since we've shared our story. But there was something very different this time. We went from the beginning to now, spanning almost 5 years. We had AJ in the meeting in the beginning to show everyone who he is now. Then, we shared our story. I think it really helped the group, and us as his parents, to see how far he really has come.
The purpose was to share our history and share our child's strengths. And sharing the things "they" said he'd never do and is now doing. AJ's determination slapped me in the face as I was speaking. He doesn't know he's any different than anyone else. We all love the same, don't we? He's determined. The most determined person I've ever known. If he can be that determined, then we can be that determined to keep advocating for him the very best we can.
