Tuesday’s Thoughts is an opportunity for you to share a great story about your child.  There are so many challenges on a daily basis but there are also great accomplishments.

If you have an inspirational story to share please click  “Contact” and write your story.  Each Tuesday I will select amazing stories to post.


There are times when progress can slip and seem to disappear.  What you may think are great strides may only be seen as tiny progress by professionals.

We recently had a doctor appointment with a neurobehavior psychologist to see how my son was progressing.  According to the doctor he is still very far behind and will most likely need to be in a group home as an adult.

This news came as a huge surprise to me and my family.  We have seen the accomplishments my son has made and we know what his abilities are so this doctor’s assumption was a shock.

The doctor spent a total of six hours with my son doing a variety of tests.  I knew he would not test well; he has never tested well.  He gets very anxious in new environments and I have been told many times that the results of the tests are a minimum of my son’s abilities.

I still have so much hope for my son.  I will continue to  support and help him become the best person he can be.  I have been told to “dream big” in my life and I will pass that onto him.  His disability is a part of his life but it will be his abilities that will allow him to achieve his dreams.
