At Not The Former Things, Shawna’s writing gives the world a candid view of a family with special needs children. I’ve been following her blog for a while now and occasionally leaving comments. Recently, she kindly asked me to write a little from my perspective as a dad in a family which has special needs as an ingredient.
The following post was originally posted there, but now I am posting it here too, with a few corrections and adjustments. There was so much I wanted to say, I hardly to knew where to begin. If you can imagine trying to mould a half inflated party balloon into a cube with your hands; it was like that in my head.
