I just found out about this group and I live in Berwyn. I am also the mother of a daughter with special needs. She has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and I have been busy advocating. So glad to find a group of families with special needs community so near me for once! I am an educator, MA ECE/Spec. Ed after being a Psych nurs (eB.A. in Psych) for many years. I love your comment about the song. Funny I was thinking of the song "Proud" posted on facebook by a young adult who has the same challenge as my daughter. Then another one he posted"You are So Beautiful to Me" which is my daughter's song. Her uncle has been singing that for years to her. , I struggle with my feeling ,but my daughter struggles with so much mor every day. She makes me proud and is beautiful. I tsruggle with keyboarding and computer tech!
