If you think about it, movies and books are filled with adventures like the ones I have experienced, a perilous journey of which you encounter who knows what that takes you far from the reality of what you know. Think about Wizard of Oz, a story that involves such a journey. Dorothy survives with the help of three friends who thought that they didn't have everything that society valued. However, in the end these friends really did have their own version of it and there was such value there. Doesn't that sound familiar?
We have journeys in life. It is those journeys that teach us what is important. It is those journeys that lead us back to home, family, and our relationships - what is truly important. I am blessed to have experienced such a journey. That is the positive thought for today.
This blog is about our journey raising three bright, gorgeous kids (Riley, Aidan, and Quinn). Miss Quinny happens to have an extra 21st chromosome (Down syndrome) along with Infantile Spasms (West syndrome) and Stereotypic Movement Disorder. This blog is for awareness and advocacy for families with children with special needs.
