In July of 2017, we were told that our daughter has Down Syndrome. It was hard news to hear. It was unexpected. With an older son having ADHD, speech and developmental delays, it was a lot to process. Two children who have varying levels of special needs. We knew the road before us was going to be difficult, filled with obstacles and victories for both children and for ourselves. But together, we would do it.
Lissa came up with the idea for this blog as a way to share our journey with others and a way for us to process everything we are going through. She has been very open about her personal struggles in the hopes to help others find the strength to work through their own struggles. We hope this blog will allow other parents of children with special needs find that they are not alone.
