I mean, let's get down to brass tacks here. The reason we come to Hopeful Parents is because we're in the trenches and need to know we're not alone. I'm a huge consumer of celebrity magazines (which I'm both proud and embarassed to admit!), and so often I read one of the celebs quoted as saying, "Parenting is the hardest job you can ever do." Every time I read it, I think to myself, if they think parenting is the hardest job -- and they probably have all sorts of help and they definitely have all sorts of money and I know for a fact, their kid doesn't have special needs -- then what about us? Nobody gets what it's like having a child with special needs until they're living it. We're living it. Let's do this together. We don't need to do it alone.
That's all for today...see you tomorrow! And don't forget to add your link. Let's create some awareness about what it's like to care for a child with special needs!
