I’ve written before about how amazing the support for special needs parents is on Twitter, but I’ve noticed that support is becoming more socialized than ever before.
Personally, I focus on Twitter and Facebook, because try as I might, I can’t spend as much time on all the social networks as I’d like (and I MUST have time to pin!).

It is so important to keep these kinds of events in focus, because participating in them is such an easy way to support the entire special needs community, and specifically these kids with awesomeness and their families.
And yet, in a world where over 1 million babies die on the very day they enter this world, I know we’re lucky in ways others might find hard to understand.
After all, most people don’t consider it lucky to find out every one of your children is born with a rare disorder, that one is completely blind, that another had a brain bleed … it most assuredly doesn’t seem like luck – but we were blessed. Because our children made it. They lived
