I hope you all had avery nice Mother's Day! I came across something that I wanted to share with you. Let me know what you think. Lori SPECIAL NEEDS MOMS A LOOK INSIDE You may think us “special moms” have it pretty rough. We have no choice. We just manage life when things get really tough. We’ve made it through the days We thought we’d never make it through. We’ve even impressed our own selves with all that we can do. We’ve gained patience beyond measure, Love we never dreamed of giving. We worry about the future But know this “special” life’s worth living. We have bad days and hurt sometimes, But we hold our heads up high. We feel joy and pride and thankfulness more often than we cry. For our kids, we aren’t just supermoms. No, we do so much more. We are cheerleaders, nurses and therapists Who don’t walk out the door. We handle rude remarks and unkind stares With dignity and grace. Even though the pain they bring cannot be erased. Therapies and treatment routes are a lot for us to digest. We don’t know what the future holds but give our kids our best. None of us can be replaced, So we don’t get many breaks. It wears us out, but to help our kids, We’ll do whatever it takes. We are selfless, not by choice, you see. Our kids just have more needs. We’re not out to change the world, But want to plant some seeds. We want our kids accepted. That really is our aim. When we look at them we just see kids. We hope you’ll do the same. April Vernon

I thank each of you for speaking out about this. We live in an area with very few knowledgeable about hemophilia-including all health staffs in town. Finally, the local hospital staff will listen when we demand they call my grandson's medical doctor before doing anything. Like your son, my grandson is very athletic and dreams of being a professional ball player someday. This is great seeing how other families handle this medical need. I thank God for all the medical pros and those who helped with the research and information gathered throughout these past centuries leading to our children being able to live and play anything at all.
