A Sincere Thank You To Responsible Special Needs Caregivers…

I was literally brought to tears by yet another story of a special needs child who was mistreated by their alleged caregivers. So, as Thanksgiving approaches, I want to express my gratitude, appreciation and admiration.

Thank you…

  • To every caseworker, nurse and doctor who questions parents and caregivers diligently and actually follows up…
  • To every teacher’s aide who forms a bond with a special needs student…
  • To every therapist who really cares about every client, whether they make progress or not…
  • To every child on every playground who has included a special needs child in play…
  • To every teacher who spends personal time on assessments and IEPs…
  • To every agency or non-profit worker who strives to bring special needs children experiences and opportunities…

To every special needs parent or caregiver who treats that child with love, especially if they are incapable of expressing it back…
