Today we took Lotus and Lance on a winter wonderland experience on a train and the end stop was Santa. Lance tried so desperately to talk to #santa Lotus was prim and proper as only Lotus knows how. Then Santa almost forgot to give presents as maybe Santa hadn’t seen such beautiful special children before!!!! #🤔i quickly reminded him maybe it’s present time. He acknowledged he did forget and he was apologetic. Lance then gave him a #huge hug I do believe SAN a had a #moment me too.

I took this video because i wanted to talk about Lulu’s EXCELLENT (!!) coordination in eating with a spoon! But I also thought it showed our sibling dynamic well too. Max is so in tune with Lulu and notices everything going on with her, including everything from her bibs to her accomplishments. He never refuses or misses an opportunity to cheer her on and generally looks at her with all of the love, affection, and amusement you could ask for in an older brother (his expression when talking about her bib kills me!). #downsyndrome #nothingdownaboutit #trisomy21 #specialneeds #siblinglove #theluckyfew

It’s amazing what the ocean does for Hudson, we call it his “happy place”. It’s like, his mind becomes a little clearer and his joy at the ocean is just so contagious. It’s definitely a special place🐬 p.s.

We decorated Christmas cookies today and Elijah did really well! He hung around and decorated about a dozen of our 65 cookies, which is pretty cool. The best part was the WORDS HE SAID! He said one, blue, balls, more, please, red!!!!!! It was the most talking I have EVER heard from him. 😊😭😊 This momma was emotional to say the least. Based on his enormous smile, he was very proud of himself. ❤❤❤ Thank you God for moments like these that help me get through the hard days of our autism journey! #autism #autismmom #autismdad #autismfamily #kneedeepinautism #disabilities #specialneeds #iepcoach #autismlife #cookiedecorating #christmas #nonverbal

To say that I’m proud of this kid would be a total and complete understatement. In fact, I don’t think there’s a word for what I’m feeling. All I know is that THIS is how MY parents must have felt when I came running in THEIR room all those years ago to tell them I got the lead. 😍 For those of you who sent him prayers and positive vibes, thank you. For those of you who have prayed for him and sent words of encouragement over the years, thank you. For those of you who have never even MET him but hold a place in your heart for him, thank you. For those of you who have stood by us on this long journey we’ve been on, thank you. ❤️ You’re looking at the next George Banks in Mary Poppins and this mama bear is literally crawling out of her skin with excitement. 😁 All those years of labels and name calling and bullying and friends who turned away from him...all those years of bullshit that he’s undergone...all the naysayers and those who put him in a box and said he’d never break out....the tears that filled my eyes last night when my boy came running into our room to tell us the news...those tears were made up of ALL that bullshit. 😭 My boy did it...and I honestly couldn’t be more proud of him as I am at this very moment. I’m 100% sure I’m going to burst into tears when I see him take that stage. I only wish my parents were here to see this.

I feel so hard, so much left to see, I lose my life, in vain.

Often when I speak about the neurodiversity movement, I see and hear people respond to positive autistic identity with “I’m sorry, but glossing over the disorder is not okay. This is a disorder and the neurodiversity movement only speaks for high functioning autistics”. This is totally inaccurate. Many of us who advocate for the neurodiversity movement address the challenges associated with raising children with significant support needs. We address many behaviours considered ‘non functional’ and interpret or ‘translate’ them because we understand them as a natural, organic, innate physiological functions to assist in the regulation of the autistic brain. I personally, absolutely understand the challenges associated with parenting children who are clinically labelled ‘low functioning’. However, I do not use functioning labels to describe my children or any other human being. They are closed minded, degrading and derogatory and ironically, only TWO adjectives that sit at each end of the illusion of a linear, sliding scale representation of autism that absolutely boxes my children into a completely misunderstood and grossly underestimated and/or overestimated potential for capacity. They do not measure, nor are they indicative of intelligence. They do not serve to pay merit to any human being. In the neurodiversity movement, autism is more than a diagnosis. It surpasses the medical, pathological model. It is how I see, perceive, process, interpret and understand the world. It is an identity. A positive, celebrated identity. My challenges, my children’s challenges, no matter which functioning labels we apparently fall under, are more often than not, created by non acceptance and/or comorbid health challenges. The behaviours associated with self harm, depression, anxiety, aggression are often physical manifestations or by-products of internalised processes that whilst those on the outside looking in struggle to understand, our autistic children do too. Cont. in comments.

On the 3rd day of Chickens, my true love sent to me... 🎶 ...a box of potty pads. 🎶 Frankie is one of our special-needs birds. He fell of a truck that was taking him to the slaughterhouse and lost a toe and a wing in the process. Because of his balance issues, he doesn’t roost well and prefers to lay on a big soft bed, covered with these potty pads for easy clean up. Will you be Frankie’s #secretsanta and send him a box? 🎁He would be very grateful! 🎄🙏🏻 Thank you!

Therapy Thursday comin atcha! Better late than never, right?! 🐍 We love this popsicle stick snake for so many reasons! It facilitates bilateral integration, increases hand strength, improves praxis, and so much more! 🐍 The best part is your kiddo can make it as long as they want, and when they’re done, they just let go and the snake explodes! 🐍💥 . . These popsicle sticks were under $2 at Walmart, so you really have no excuse not to give it a shot. Fun (and beneficial) for all ages! 🐍 . . . #thesensoryprojectshow #therapythursday #popsiclesticks #kidscrafts #busytoddler #stemtoys #toysnake #makeitfun #occupationaltherapy #ot #kids #specialneeds #podcast #boise . .

Got some Jack Daniel’s in my goody bag at an author event this fall. Finally put it to good use: Maple Whiskey Pecan Pie (with some on the side for sipping). P.S. if Julia Child ran a distillery, this is what it would smell like.

Excuses, excuses are all that I hear All I can see when I look in the mirror I can't escape all these thoughts in my mind They're waiting to haunt me night after night I feel it in my bones and everything I know It's underneath my skin and it won't let go They know me all too well, but only time will tell If this is who I am, do I know myself? Don't forget your life's your own, don't ever let it go In the heat of the moment, when fear has you frozen You're crashing and burning, when life's at its coldest Don't fall too far from who you are They can cut us but we'll wear our scars In the heat of the moment, when fear has you frozen You're crashing and burning, when life's at its coldest Don't fall too far from who you are Try to tear us apart but know that we'll wear our scars Try to tear us apart but know that we'll wear our scars Denial, Denial is all that I've known Holding me hostage I'm never alone Fighting for air, I'll fight to survive My soul's not for sale I won't pay the price I feel it in my bones and everything I know It's underneath my skin but I won't let go Don't forget your life's your own, don't ever let it go In the heat of the moment, when fear has you frozen You're crashing and burning, when life's at its coldest Don't fall too far from who you are They can cut us but we'll wear our scars In the heat of the moment, when fear has you frozen You're crashing and burning, when life's at its coldest Don't fall too far from who you are Try to tear us apart but know that we'll wear our scars You can cut us up but we will survive You had your chance now it's our time to stand up and rise I will survive Right now the tables turn We're gonna scream it out loud and let our voices be heard #emo #sad #adhd #specialneeds #anxiety #depression #lonely #suicidal #suicidalthoughts #emo #sad #adhd #specialneeds #anxiety #ocdtraits #depression #anger #angermanagement #lonely #lost #broken #damagedmind #damaged #fadingaway #suicidal #suicidalthoughts #wontgoaway #sleepparalysis #mentalillness

Let the wolf - Herald of fire, voice of ruin - run rampant, through the heavens His fangs carve a bloody swathe; red stains the maiden's gown Blood and the snow Her bonds tighten, her cancer stands to attention Blood and the snow Cough black tar into the dust The devouring son is risen Pray the earth is swallowed by the sun An infinite night This cold is all consuming, I dread these shadows looming The sun is setting with the lights burning low Horned crowns and cloven hooves; the unthinking callow youth; these demons walk with a sickness in two I feel it growing I feel it growing Walking the earth; creatures of deception, loathsome since birth Blood. Snow. Herald of fire. Voice of ruin This cold is all consuming, I dread these shadows looming The sun is setting with the lights burning low Horned crowns and cloven hooves; the unthinking callow youth; these demons walk with a sickness in two Horned crowns and cloven hooves The unthinking callow youth #emo #sad #adhd #specialneeds #anxiety #depression #lonely #suicidal #suicidalthoughts #emo #sad #adhd #specialneeds #anxiety #ocdtraits #depression #anger #angermanagement #lonely #lost #broken #damagedmind #damaged #fadingaway #suicidal #suicidalthoughts #wontgoaway #sleepparalysis #mentalillness #emo #sad #adhd #specialneeds #anxiety #depression #lonely #suicidal #suicidalthoughts #emo #sad #adhd #specialneeds #anxiety #ocdtraits #depression #anger #angermanagement #lonely #lost #broken #damagedmind #damaged #fadingaway #suicidal #suicidalthoughts #wontgoaway #sleepparalysis #mentalillness

Earlier this week, I went to the #nutcracker with a group of kindergarteners. There is a child in the class who has some pretty significant medical needs, and the teacher had tried to arrange it so the entire class could sit with this classmate, in his wheelchair. Despite prior assurances that this child would be treated equally to the rest of his class, there was some serious hesitation on the part of the staff when we arrived at the theater. The teacher was phenomenal and stood her ground, refusing to allow the class to be seated away from their classmate. • Fast forward to today, when we were able to attend the performance of Ballet For Me!—- A #ballet class offered free of charge for children with unique physical needs at @sdcyballet. #charlotteamalieknick and #piercescottknick had #ballet brought to them, rather than having to seek it out. Higher level ballet students are matched with the Ballet For Me! students in order to support and accommodate each child’s needs. And that’s the shift so desperately required: Char and Pierce were offered ballet, accommodated for their needs, rather than requiring their needs to be accommodated for ballet. That nuance, the effort to find these kids where they are, makes all the difference. • And it’s what makes me think that when these children are the teaches and staff at theaters, no one will have to fight for a child to sit with his classmates. It will just be the norm. • Thank you, #sdcyballet, for helping move the needle on #inclusion. • #medfrag #trach #gtube #jtube #sandiego #specialneeds #cp #nakedneck

I am so blessed to have my son in my life. He gave me a purpose so I will give him all I can & a little bit more. I know one day we will have our own little family unit back (provided mummy can find someone special enough to be a part of our world) but for now I am going to be selfish and enjoy every inch of him all on my own. We have some very difficult days & some gloriously wonderful ones. I’m so pleased Reggie chose me to be his mummy.... because I would choose him a million times over. I’d endure every single awful memory once more if i had too... #specialneeds #globaldevelopmentaldelay #speechdelay #prematurebaby #ex25weeker #atruemiracle #mybabyboy #myworld #senco

We are gathered here today to give rise to abomination He will cast the chains of subjugation Spread his oppression across all nations; unending ire; the tables shifted Under his cleansing fire the filth is lifted The sea will burn crimson under his reign She was always at her best dressed in flames Witness eternal disdain The tree is withered The roots are rotten and weak They grow through the skulls and the ribs of the children murdered at its feet The lie you've been chasing; the happiness you seek; you could have found what you sought blooming in man, but the rot was to deep An axe to the tree Prepare the sacrifice Drag her screaming to the altar Bring me the sacred knife Lay her on the table Carve on her chest the shape of the elder sign The hour draws near Raise your glass and share her blood as holy wine The hour draws near The tree is withered The roots are rotten and weak They grow through the skulls and the ribs of the children murdered at its feet I vocare te diaboli - Ustulo omnia - Nova nobis - Satana (Hark, the calling of crows) The sea will burn crimson under my reign I will see this world wreathed in flames Witness pain #emo #sad #adhd #specialneeds #anxiety #depression #lonely #suicidal #suicidalthoughts #emo #sad #adhd #specialneeds #anxiety #ocdtraits #depression #anger #angermanagement #lonely #lost #broken #damagedmind #damaged #fadingaway #suicidal #suicidalthoughts #wontgoaway #sleepparalysis #mentalillness #emo #sad #adhd #specialneeds #anxiety #depression #lonely #suicidal #suicidalthoughts #emo #sad #adhd #specialneeds #anxiety #ocdtraits #depression #anger #angermanagement #lonely #lost #broken #damagedmind #damaged #fadingaway #suicidal #suicidalthoughts #wontgoaway #sleepparalysis #mentalillness

So we found out that the retained testicle on Wink was cancerous. It was a Sertoli cell tumor and a seminoma. Our oncologist recommended that to be safe we do an ultrasound and chest X-rays which are being done today. If all clear Wink will be ready for adoption for someone who may be looking for a very special boy with special needs. Wink is blind and has no lower jaw in front. He is very sweet and mellow. I think his face is to die for ❤️🐾 #adoptdontshop #adoptwink #specialneeds #secondchances #friendsofmilo #rescuedog #dogrescue #smalldogsrule #maltipoo #saturdayvibes #cancersucks

(2nd time posting this picture because I just love him and that handsome face)...Yesterday morning I went on a field trip with my older son’s class to watch a Christmas play at a local high school....While we were waiting for the play to start, I noticed a small class come in which had 2 boys with DS in it. They were adorable and just so excited to be watching the play. I watched the teacher and how she interacted with them. So loving. There was a time that I would have noticed that class coming in and thought how sweet they were...but now seeing that class, I see my Daniel and what high school may look like for him...because this is my world now...Y’all, that thought use to scare me but now I’m filled with pride that he’s mine. I remember being pregnant with him and just dealing with different waves of emotions...emotions that are normal when you receive any type of life altering news...one of those was embarrassment. Y’all this sounds terrible and it kills me now that I would even think something like this but I truly thought I would be embarrassed by Daniel. This couldn’t be further from the truth. There’s a sense of pride that comes when you carry the title ‘special needs’ mama 😊 I couldn’t be more proud to have him in our family and show him off to the world. That’s what the point of this page is. I want to be honest with y’all...DS is hard in certain aspects...just like my other kids are trying in other areas...but it’s not bad. Different isn’t bad. Different is just different. And man, I’m so thankful for Different and Daniel. #inclusion #theluckyfew💙💛 #nothingdownaboutit #bigd #advocate #upsyndrome #upsyndromenotdownsyndrome #specialneeds 😍🙏🏻🙌🏻

48 hours! That’s how long we waited to see Amelia smile after she was taken in for #surgery. Can’t blame her for being grumpy; over 4 hours of #intubation , 5 procedures, 3 specialists later, who wouldn’t be! . . Amelia had her eyelid fixed. She has what’s called #ptosis wherein the eyelid is droopy because of missing muscles and this causes obstructive vision which could impact the development of her vision, especially in these critical years. This correction surgery is temporary and will need to be repeated as needed in the future. For now her eyelid is a little taut and she hasn’t learnt to shut it completely, which will change over time. . . She also got ear tubes to drain fluid from her ear, a comprehensive sedated hearing test which showed some hearing loss and a couple of scopes were done. . . Our main takeaway from these tests and the scopes were that we now know Amelia will need hearing aids and that she has floppy muscles through her airway, which is called #tracheomalacia . This was something we already knew, but just got a visual confirmation of what happens in her airway. Her muscles tend to collapse (not entirely), which basically impacts her in many ways. One of these is that Amelia has respiratory issues, especially after being intubated for surgery. We learnt this the hard way after her first surgery back in April. This time around her medical care team were better prepared and took a lot of precautions to mitigate the risks. They did a splendid job and after some initial post-op trouble, Amelia is recovering very well. . . She’s still in recovery but she’s off all oxygen support and slowly back on her feeds too. Thank you all for your prayers and good vibes. This little girl in her one year has already been through so much more than most of us reading this. She is such an inspiration! #ameliastrong . . . #gtube #tubefed #nicu #nicugrad #picu #medicalmomma #motherhoodunplugged #morhersofinstagram #specialneeds #rarechromosomedisorder #rarechromosomedeletion #choosekind #differentisbeautiful #hypotonia #ngtube #tracheomalacia #laryngomalacia #ptosis #hearingloss #hearingaids #developmentaldelay #medicallycomplex #littlewarrior #cleftpalate

I AM A PIONEER! 🦷🙋🏼‍♀️ A little over a week ago, I completed coursework to become a RDHAP - a registered dental hygienist who can work in Alternative Practice. This licensure (which will be completed in the very near future) will allow me to take care of my patients in & out of the dental office. An RDHAP can provide dental hygiene services outside of the traditional dental setting. Places like nursing homes, hospitals, schools - areas where people can often miss out on care due to resources and/or cost. I’m excited to start a new adventure as I continue to care for my patients who are so special to me! PS - the class required a trip to The University of the Pacific in San Fransisco for the in-person final, which I completed at 36 weeks pregnant 🤰🏼My proud parents came to meet me at the airport! #happysaturday #rdhap #hygienegoals #ilovemyjob #specialneeds #universityofthepacific

Yesterday we had hearing evaluations, today Ryder went for his speech therapy consult. It is pure chaos here y’all! Some days I want to wave the white flag before the day even starts. This boy is exhausted and gets so fussy I dread appointments because the poor guy needs a break. Today was an absolute gift! He smiled at the evaluator and actually interacted and enjoyed his session. It was a welcome break for us both. It’s so hard to have so many doctor visits and specialty appointments and endure an hour of sobbing. It’s nice to finally see some smiles🙌🏼 moving towards the light and loving it!!!

Yesterday the twins had their hearing evaluations. It was a fun appointment which is such a nice change from our regular sob filled doctor visits. Ryan took Ryder and was with him during his test which allowed me one on one time with Sadie girl. She is SO much fun. We read about hearing aids, build a tower with blocks and laughed as it tumbled down.

It was a delight to attend The Rapallo Family’s (@anirapallo) Bake Sale for Autism - ‘Celebrating Julian’ in support of @autismspeaks with @mtclife —————— Creating Awareness for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is crucial in today’s society. We need to continue to push for better awareness of what autism is, what it is not, and what can be done for those on the spectrum who need help. Let’s stay committed to this by actively being involved in your own community by supporting those with special needs! . . . . . #autismawareness #autism #specialeducation #asd #specialneeds #autismo #autismspeaks #autismspeakscanada #education #teacher #brampton #ontario

Okay so theres a story behind this. As many of you know, my youngest sister Violet has special needs. I have always called her moon baby or moon child. I looked up the meaning one day and didn't really like anything I found so I decided to make my own definition.

It takes two to mango! Seriously @ralphs has so many amazing new flavors of @nakedjuice . Harper and I are obsessed! #sponsored Who else loves the mighty mango? Mother Nature gave us some pretty great stuff to play with—and given that our name is Naked®, it’d be pretty lame to cover up the taste of her delicious bounty with artificial flavors or added sugars. So every time you crave refreshing, delicious fruits and veggies, you can be 100% sure that every Naked juice or smoothie is providing you with just that—100% juice. #nakedjuiceatkroger

**Call to Pryr for #princessbelle!!** Many of you know that our Annabelle has OI (brittle bone disease), this last year she was also diagnosed with Growth Hormone Deficiency. In moving across the world, we brought a few months supply of her injection medicine and now it's time to refill it. Unfortunately, this medicine that is made/Rx/sold in the USA, is not readily available to us, esp while traveling and not yet settled w a "permanent" hospital/Dr team. **We know Father can make a way! And that's where you come in!** . . .Expat life is full of adventures, one of them is "coming home" and adjusting to living on this side of the world again, (even for a short time). Life goes on and "normal" stuff has to continue. That means new Drs and pharmacies. It also means different laws and protocols for medication, which can lead to complications like delayed access or needing a new dose and/or a new machine for our daughter's nightly injections. Even though we did the research, we made sure the medicine was available in both/all countries. Nonetheless, obstacles are not a surprise in the life we lead... In our experience, it is not access to Drs that is a problem to fix. It's access to appropriate (not excessively overpriced) medicine to treat non-preventable conditions, esp in children!! ((Side note, in Thailand Bs hormone replacement medicine costs about $200/vile, 2wks worth. Here in the USofA it costs about $1800/vile. - We are so very grateful for our wonderful insurance that will indeed reimburse us for this medicine! HE is faithful to provide!)) . . .This is not a complaint, but a request for your help in bringing our needs to the Throne of Grace and asking that the King of all these details would intervene on our behalf. We know you will agree w us as you always stand w us! We know He will give us wisdom and resources to keep our girl healthy and strong! We trust Him in all our circumstances, He's never left us on our own! Thanks friends, we love you all!!
