    • Thank you so much for your incredibly sweet comment. I am so glad this post was inspiring, that is truly my goal. I want to be able to help as many people as I possibly can. I am sure you are very helpful and wonderful with your son and he is lucky to have you! That is wonderful you work with special education children. They need those who are understanding and patient. I had 2 cousins that were in special ed, one has passed away and the other is still struggling. He has mental retardation amongst other issues. You have truly touched my heart, I can feel the love and kindness from your words. Take care of yourself and your sweet son!
