The Coffee Klatch is all about empowering parents with knowledge and hope.
Many of us have been on the special needs parenting journey for a very long time. Through the tears and triumphs we have not only survived but thrived. We have made more than our fair share of mistakes, forgiven ourselves and moved forward. Marriages have been made stronger, marriages have fallen apart. Friendships have been made and friendships have been lost. Our children have changed our view of the world and its priorities. Mothers have become warriors and fathers have become champions.
Our children’s misunderstood differences whether physical or emotional, their struggles and their accomplishments have given us not only knowledge but confidence. They have not only affected us as the parents but the siblings, grandparents and loving relatives as well. It is this confidence I hope to tap into in this writing and ask you to share your failures and successes to help those who will be walking in our worn out old pair of shoes while traveling that difficult and lonely road.
I can’t do this alone. I need you, the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and educators to share your experiences. Give others what you so desperately needed when you were starting on our journey ….. Hope.
