There’s a post going around Facebook; it’s the “Have You Ever …” version for special needs parents. It’s a mixed list of “Have you ever … Diffused a Meltdown or had to <insert whatever> for your child.” I reposted it because I thought there was a little community in it. Some, “Hey, you aren’t alone!” Most people responded by saying they had done all but three, maybe two. We’ve done them all. All nineteen on the list we have experienced to some extent. My husband said, “WE WIN! What’s our prize?!” Special needs and all that comes with it gives us community, the “I get it” with each other.
