Verde Valley Special Needs Support Group

Monthly on the 4th Thursday @6:00p Verde Valley Special Needs Support Group: Our children have Downs syndrome, seizure disorder, feeding tubes, premature birth, deafness, autism spectrum disorder, spina bifida, the list goes on. I hated the hard surgeries for my son, but one mother wished her child had a condition that doctors could fix. I struggled with how to respond to strangers that point and stare, but another mother wanted her child's condition to be visibly obvious so strangers would understand why he wasn't doing what other 9-year-old boys did. It is powerful to simply congregate with other parents whose children have special needs, hear the variation in stories, see the experience refracted through the crystal of multiple identities. Because I've learned on this parenting journey, no one is behind me, no one is in front of me. I am exactly where I need to be with my child. A place where we all are students and we all are teachers.
