Patty shares important reminders as you’re looking for the best school environment for your child with special-needs.
On the day after Easter, parents often struggle to connect the dots between serving a risen Savior and caring for kids with special needs. Because our circumstances and our reactions are similar to those of the disciples, their stories provide comfort and practical guidance for us in several ways.
Perfect timing does not exist. Is there something that you know you should start, stop, change or do? Perhaps there is something big that God is urging you to tackle? Today, ask God to show you why you aren’t doing it.
There is always hope in Jesus. There is always peace to be found in Him. I pour out my soul to Him and find healing. Whatever the future brings, we don’t go into it or through it alone. We go together, with confidence in Christ who goes with us.
Caring for someone with special needs has been difficult, as we carry the heavy burden of 24/7 care for someone. This leaves us feeling taxed.
We have never forgotten that time when we felt undermined, as parents who couldn’t advocate for their child. You are, in fact, quite the expert on your child. When you face the challenges from educators and others with degrees, certifications, or other credentials, remember that you are more than just a parent, you are everything to your child.
