When you’re the mother of a special needs child, it’s easy to become overwhelmed, angry and sad — or all of them at the same time. However, community blogger Kari Horton says a recent tragedy has helped her gain perspective.
“I hope you continue to persevere and embrace your differences,” community blogger Kari Horton writes to her special needs son on his 11th birthday. “You are my miracle, alive and beautiful. Keep doing all the things that make you happy, and never stop smiling.”
Blogger Kari Horton’s son might not enjoy visits to Santa as much as some kids. However, his holiday joys – memorizing the family’s schedule and when TV Christmas specials air, as well as apple pie – are meaningful nonetheless.
