A Special Needs Dad Gives Thanks

A special needs parent fell in a hole.

Doctor: “Can you keep a diary of your experience in the hole?”

Local authority: “Sorry, we don’t have enough money for a ladder.”

Family member: “What hole?”

Another special needs parent: “I’m here. I’m on my way down. I know how to get out and I won’t let you do it alone.”

At this time of year, we give thanks and count our blessings. Last weekend we had my daughter’s special needs friends and their parents over for a pre-Thanksgiving dinner. Our kids don’t get too many invites so it was a very, very special day for her and her friends. And for me – well, being surrounded by friends who know how to get you out of a hole is truly a blessing!

We at NNF give thanks for the small things that can make a big difference. Please consider making a donation on Giving Tuesday and during the holiday season so we can continue to pay it forward and bring innovation that can make an impact to our special community.
