    Thank you for that, Heather! You are not alone. <3

  2. I can’t stand elephants in rooms or people being scared of me talking about elephants. You may feel differently, but I think we should eradicate them all together. (The invisible ones, not the real ones) I wish I could just buy you that van!! I know IEP’s, 504’s and emotional pain. I don’t know the other language you speak of, although I would sit down with you and talk about it any day!! Thank you for sharing what life is like with Aidan.

    Thank-you everyone for your comments. Yes, this blog is intended to eradicate the invisible elephants and live life honestly. Please share with everyone, knowing that I’m an expert only on my life and am very aware that every parent can have a different experience or opinion about parenting a child with a disability.
