I started a special needs scout troop. Tonight was our first meeting. One of the Cubs had a rough time and complained almost non-stop with some minor physical stuff (stopped feet, slapped the table, etc). His mom was ready to drop out of the troop. I convinced her to stay and try again. Her son seemed surprised that she wanted to leave, he said he liked it (lol). I walked her to the car and brainstormed some ideas to try and make it better for her son (we're going to have a 'meeting' with just two boys and then work him up to a full meeting of 6). She started to cry and said that I couldn't know what it was like to find someone who 'got it'. Immediately, all of you came to mind. Yes, I do know what it is like to find people who 'get it'. Thanks to all of you for letting me know that I wasn't alone so that I found the skills and the strength to reach out to her. The impact of this board goes far beyond the words we type here.
