day 2

Just gathering resources I have compiled is time consuming. Luckily I had energy today to do it. Keep checking back as I am adding to the list below.

can't access resources

It's clear there are resources out there, but accessing them is a whole other story. I have found as a single parent, that even the support groups and resources available to us, are difficult to attain. Most groups, classes etc (I have found) do not offer childcare, so the single parent with little supports has no way to attend. One of the first things on my agenda is creating a network of parents that can swap off childcare to attend classes, groups, therapies etc. If you are interested in joining this network, please email me with all your info.

Creating a blog ~ Jan 12, 2010

I created this blog in 2007... But am just finding my way back now in Jan 2010 - a New Years Resolution.

Being a mom of a special needs child is like being a superhero without the cape or special powers. The ability I have to be this little boy's mom, comes from the Lord. Without God, I would fail at this daunting task. I write this in hopes to raise awareness, lend support and create a network of resources I have found, and will continue to find as I go through this journey. Please feel free to post and ask questions. My life is an open book to those who wish to learn more about a day in the life of a special little boy.
