    (((BIG HUG))) Felling very emotional today, I don't know why but when I watch my 4.5 yr old today it breaks my heart that she may never do the things others can and will do with ease. Oh she'll do it too but never with ease that her "normal" peers will.

    I look at my 9 and 6 year old and wonder about what they can accomplish, what will they become with a society stuck on stigmatizing mental health - to their face saying here this will help and behind their backs calling them crazy hooligans and disturbed people or criminals in training. Society is unforgiving when it comes to special needs kids with mental health disabilities..it's quite disturbing when I'm told "no child left behind" when everywhere I turn mine are being left behind...

    Read this while @ work and I had to fight back the tears myself.

    We sure didn't sign on for this, but we fight the fight EVERY day...

    This so rings true, thank you.

    This was really great. This is a little uplifting for me. Missy's going through a rough spot right now.
