Being a parent is hard. Being a parent of a child with special needs is even harder. I know this will be a very limited SUYL (or maybe it won't?) but there is such a community here and I thought it would be neat if people could connect with other families experiencing the same things. I think it's easy to feel alone. I can't tell you how much it helped to hear from so many of you with children who wear hearing aids when I found out we were facing that. I didn't know anyone in real life who had gone through this and to hear from so many "in the blog world" was a HUGE comfort.

So if you have a special needs child or maybe a child with a long term illness - I'd love for you to share your story and then hopefully connect with other families in your shoes. Or if you have been there - maybe you could reach out to families walking that road now.
I'm not sure how this will go - but I'm praying it can be a blessing - even if to just one person.
Please as you link up - put what it is you are dealing with (not your blog name) - so it will be easier for people to find you.
