Families of children with special needs don’t celebrate occasions like everyone else. Christmas and the holidays in general can bring additional stresses and challenges to our unique situations which are already often challenging enough. Our children require extra attention and extra preparation that can drain us before the holidays even begin.
This Christmas, our family is focusing on what means the most to us: Each other! We are excited for the holidays! We are excited for the lights, the magic, the excited face of our sweet little boy, the togetherness, the love, the joy, the remembering. We will spend our time with the ones we love, embrace what makes our family so special, and celebrate in the true spirit of the season.
“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
― Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
