As a parent to children with high additional needs, it can be a roller coaster of emotions. It’s beautiful, overwhelming, terrifying, and rewarding all at once. There are days where we don’t know how we survived and days that we want to relive over and over.
We are not able to just celebrate any given occasion. Attending someone’s house requires a huge amount of planning, explanations of what behaviors may appear and there is a big possibility we may only last five minutes at your home. Celebration days are normally extremely stressful and isolating for our family and so many others.
