In the Spring of 2013 I spearheaded Special Needs Awareness Month at Abby’s school. The goal: To show all students that we all have challenges. Some a lot bigger than others, but we all have them. The program’s reception by the administration, staff, teachers and families was overwhelming. My friend Kristi from Finding Ninee encouraged me to make it a series on this blog.
The My Challenge Series was born thanks to bloggers and non-bloggers being willing to share their struggles. To show all of us that the little and big is a part of who we are. But it never defines us. We are more than Autistic, Down Syndrome, Food Allergies, Over-scheduled and Unorganized. We are more than moms, dads, students and grandparents. Our title doesn’t define us but it might help explain us.

Do not let “not being a writer” stop you sometimes those are the best challenges.
