Poem: Special Needs Moms




I am considering making a youtube video of this poem with music and photos. If you want to be a part of it, send me photos of you & your child to vernyvern7@yahoo.com. I would especially like pictures of kids doing therapy & reaching milestones. Thanks!

Thanks April! That was touching and true. Even us stay at home dads can relate to the mothers views. My 14 month old son has DS and I spend time with him and researching DS issues all the time. Thanks for the encouragement and keep the faith!

This is beautiful! Would you mind if I shared it on my Facebook wall and/or blog?

Linda, I would love for you to share it! I am also hoping people will post and share the "I Do Not Have Special Needs" Video (last tab on the right across the top of my page). Thanks for visiting!!

Hi April,
As a 'special- needs- mom" from the Netherlands, I was thoroughly touched by your poem. You hit the nail on its head! Thank you for sharing it with the rest of the world!

I really love this poem I just found out my daughter is hearing impaired and my other daughter has a learning disability. I cried a lot for both of them but I am not new to all of this. I had a learning disability and my sister is hearing impaired as well.
It just hurts and reading this poem actually brightened my day. Thank you April!

Thank you! As a "special needs mom" I loved this poem it was so spot on for me!

An amazing rendition - it was like you just knew what my heart my saying - no words can express how touching and heart wrenching it is at the same time. Hugs to you, my fellow special needs mom - even though I have never seen you I feel I know you.....I hope it ok with you - I am planning on reading this at a Mother's Day event right after a few special needs kids and moms perform a Bollywood dance!!!
