I'm watching a show on Discovery Health called Truth Be Told: I Have a Special Needs Child. I am amazed. Not only are these parents (they are focusing on the moms though) strong enough to share their stories they speak with honesty. I was tearing up when they were showing the different children and I realized it's because I feel guilt and a certain level of fear. I have nothing wrong with me (hey, hey, you know what I mean) and I don't know how I would handle having a child with special needs. One mother spends 42 hours week changing her child's bandages. Their situations are beyond my comprehension. It's a great episode if you ever have the chance to catch it.


  1. Aww Thanks! I am Kennedy's mom. Was just googling the show! :) I'm glad you enjoyed it!

  2. Ha ha ha! Nikki, I was just going to tell you that Renee, one of the moms, is a blog/facebook/military wife friend of mine, but she beat me to it!
