The Moment Our House Became “Handicap-Accessible”

The special needs life is small and big. It’s small in that you feel like 90% of the other parents you meet can’t even picture what goes on within your four walls on a daily basis. And it’s big in the fact that it opens your life and heart wide open to other people who can help you and at least feel for you if not like you. It also makes you brave.

I shared our story of the moment our house became handicap-accessible with Scary Mommy and they got it. They got that little thread that runs through all of parenting no matter who you or your kids are: we all have a hard time letting go.
