This writing is geared towards mothers with special needs kids (no specific need is specified)  The author is “unknown” and there was no title, so I called this “Reach for the Stars” and put it in a nice printable format.  I know many mothers can relate to this writing! click the link below to open a PDF copy.

“Reach for the Stars”


A very popular piece that is applicable to parents of kids with all types of special needs and disabilities. Again, I put this into a printable format. click on the link for a printable PDF.

    “The gift that I have been given is perhaps this: to thoroughly love someone with a developmental disability and epilepsy, until the disability becomes so irrelevant that it vanishes from consciousness. It is to show others how the force of love for another human being penetrates all barriers and to demonstrate that anyone is worthy of love, regardless of what they can achieve, or what they look like. It is to show that persons with severe developmental disabilities and epilepsy are capable of being in mutually loving relationships – which extend far beyond just being a recipient of care. It is to challenge the dominant values of our culture with a radical love, to value what society says has no value, to find healing there and to bring others into that healing. It has taken years for understanding to pierce through the dense layers of my being; through fear, grief, anger and preoccupation with seizures. I finally accept her disability as part of her humanity. In the end, it was my perception that needed to change, not her. In the end, it was me that needed to learn to love.” -Julie Browne
