‘If we send our kids to school, we’re ‘selfish.’ If we keep them home, we’re ‘living in fear.’ We’re offered strong opinions from others not even in our position.’: Mom urges ‘there is no right decision’

“Some of us have already decided. For some, it was decided for us, and some, like me, are sitting right smack dab in the middle of indecision. We’re offered strong opinions from others not even in our position. And if we’re honest, we’re over it.”

‘How do you send a child who doesn’t understand personal space, let alone social cues, back to school?’: Special needs mom says ‘I trust we will all make the best decision for our family’

“What do you do when you have a child who explores the world around him by touching and feeling everything he sees? Last night, I broke down. All the thoughts and emotions came pouring out of me on my bedroom floor. As a parent of a child with a disability, NOTHING can prepare us to make the type of decisions we are all abruptly facing.”

‘My eyes were moist. ‘Margie, you made my day. We appreciate you.’ She came running down to the corner.’: 4-year-old girl becomes best friends with garbagemen, ‘This is beyond anything we ever expected’

“She wasn’t feeling well all day. When she heard them coming down the road, she asked, ‘It’s the garbage men!!! Can I go outside?’ Since that day, her love of trucks has become more about who is driving them than the truck itself. This has gone beyond anything we ever expected.”
