  1. You are such a wonderful writer, Aprille. My son is grown now, but I remember all those tough times. I wish I had such wonderful support when he was small. You have encouraged many people and inspired me. Thank you!

  2. I found your blog through Christian Mommy Blogger and read your post, “How to Encourage a Special Needs Mom.” I am a special needs mom and I cried as I read every tip listed on your post because I could relate to each and every one of them! #7: “Don’t Invalidate or Downplay Her Hardship…” is especially true and it has happened to me. I try not to take it personally, but it really does hurt when someone doesn’t really understand how different it is for a mother of a child with special needs. I blog about my son with special needs at “Not Just Anyone: An Exceptional Blessing” (www.notjustanyone.org). Thank you so much for sharing this post and for educating mothers of children who are typically developing.
