This isn't that new, but it's new to me. I found it through some links about Vicki Forman, whose son Evan died recently. I'm tagging it under 'Truth' - a high compliment.
The Mother at the Swings
I've been on both sides of this conversation. Actually, I'm still more uncomfortable as the mother looking on. Now that Becca goes to a special needs pre-k class, we meet all kinds of kids. I'm really curious, hopefully not in a bad way, about each of their stories. Becca wears her diagnosis on her face, but with most of the kids in her class, it's not obvious. I'd like to be able to ask the other moms, So why is your child in this class? Tell me your story, and I'll tell you mine!
