ABC's of A Special Needs Mom

ABCs of a Special Needs Mom
I wanted to take a minute to share with you the ABC’s of being a special needs mom. Whether it involves a thought or a feeling, a hope or a dream, a task or a job, special needs moms fill many different hats and go through many different emotions all in “one day!” Their work is never ending.
Not that I am taking away from what any other mother does because the job is enormous, but as a mother of a child with special challenges, I do feel there are a lot more things we deal with, that others may not know we do on a daily basis!
So let me share the ABC’s of a Special Needs Mom!

A – ADVOCATE

B – BREATH

C- COURAGEOUS

D – DANCE (LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING!)

E – ENCOURAGE

F – FRIENDSHIPS ARE IMPORTANT TO THEM!
