Unfortunately it’s taken me a long time to learn that the most important things in life are family and friends. I think for most people that just comes with age. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Talking to friends, I continue to be amazed at how life can give you what you need when your eyes are open to it.
Since that conversation, I’ve gone back to my reading to prepare for my son’s future and I must admit, it feels much easier now. I feel like I have a map as to where I am going and some of the stops along the way.
When you have a child with special abilities, there is a community out there, you just need to connect. As I said, you just need to keep your eyes open but equally important, start a conversation.
As someone who is an introvert, that is one of the hardest things for me to do but when it comes to my son, sometimes I feel like it’s the easiest thing to do. That community is so open, it’s just getting your courage up to ask. After all, we’re really one big family.
