Fragile X, Fragile Hope: Finding Joy in Parenting a Child with Special Needs
This book tells the beginning of our story. It chronicles the first seven years of Zack’s life—from my first concerns that he was different to finding a diagnosis, to coming to a place of peace. As time has gone on, I’ve found great joy in being Zack’s mom.
Has your child recently been diagnosed with a developmental disability or autism?
If so, you may feel your world is shattered, and you may have no idea what to do or where to go for help.
You wish you could stop what is happening, and you are afraid of what the future holds.
I understand. I felt the same when Zack was diagnosed with fragile X syndrome and autism.
But there is hope, and there are many people ready to walk this road with you. I am one of them.
On an unfamiliar journey, it is helpful to have traveling companions. Other families have walked the path you are on and they may even be a few steps ahead of you. We periodically post stories from these families. Stay tuned and always be the first to read our story and those of others by subscribing to our newsletter list here.
Everyone's story is unique and needs to be heard
It always helps to know you’re not alone. Your family’s story will encourage families with children who have special needs. Many aren’t sure what to do and they feel scared, alone, frustrated, sad, angry and disappointed. Or they may just be weary from the journey. You’ve been there, and you know how it feels. One simple way you can make a difference is to share the story of your family: how having a child with special needs has changed you, what you’ve learned, and what has helped you deal with challenging circumstances. Even if your story is just beginning, it can give hope, and that can change lives. Let us share a moment in time with your family and your special child.
