"Welcome to Holland", your passport has been revoked.
Reminds me of my Izzy when she gets woke up in the morning :)
Okay, anyone who knows me very well knows I can be quite the procrastinator which is why it has taken me almost ten years to even start this website. But...here I am. My entire reason for starting this websiteis because along this crazy road in special needs I have met a lot of great families, particularly moms. Just like me some 11 years ago, we all began with the "Welcome to Holland" poem after our kids got the special needs label. A label that may not mean much to some, but wow what a label it is. You feel alone, married or not...you feel like your life is over, even though you know it isn't... you feel like you lost your child, even though you didn't....you get lost in doctor visits, therapy appointments, hospital stays, iv pumps, feeding pumps, and special needs equipment. All the while we get lost in being a great mom to the kid who needs us so much, we lose ourselves somewhat. We forget to shower, brush our teeth, wash our face, you name it. We become consumed...and I'm not saying that's a bad thing. But we shouldn't have to feel alone. There are way too many moms who don't know they can talk to others going through or have been through a lot of the same stuff. We know not only the best resources, laws, and doctors, but how you feel. I am hoping to make this site into a place for all those resources it's hard for families to find and a place with listings of special needs equipment that you can donate or sell to other special families when your kid reaches another awesome milestone and doesn't need it anymore :) Click on the blog for funny insights into my "Holland" with my Izzy.
