Kim thank you SO much for this amazing spotlight and for sharing your sweet Sam with us. He's a sweetheart! Plus I love your candor (yes you can certainly say masturbation!) I don't know where to start with all the wonderful things Kim said... I love when she said, "All kids have something special to share and it's our job to help them share it with the world." Also, I got teary eyed at the end of the first question when she said, "You want your child to have everything in life and maybe, just maybe, what they have is enough." Yes. Maybe it is. Not to mention all the really smart advice about talking to a lawyer and thinking and planning for the future now! Good stuff. Thanks again Kim... from your first email I loved your energy and attitude, and this spotlight didn't disappoint. Read more about Kim and her family on their blog here.
If you or someone you know would like to participate in the special needs spotlight series please email me at thislittlemiggy at gmail dot com. In addition to parents of special needs children, I'd love to talk to parents who have child with special needs who is now an adult, as well as siblings or anyone else with a unique perspective.
