I was at a friend's house and we were talking about society and kids and family and things like that. I said, "There are so many more people with special needs than there used to be.... I see them all the time!"
I said, "When Tim was little, he was the only child we knew that had special needs." But now, it seems like there are so many more!
And my friend sort of had this look like, "Really, there are?"
And then it dawned on me....the only kids with special needs they have seen are ours.
And so I said, "Hey! Maybe there are more, because there are more of us! LOL
She started laughing and I did too..... (you would have had to have been there)
I forget that our world is not typical for the majority of families. We live a different sort of life. But it is a wonderful, rich and full sort of life. :)
I'm so thankful for my bloggy world friends who walk the same path. They keep us from being alone, and can share in our moments of humor, trial and triumph. :)

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
