We’re so glad you’re here.
You’ve found the virtual comfy couches of a community through DaySpring’s (in)courage called (in)Able. We specifically serve, love, and (in)courage moms of kids with special needs. Needs like ADHD, Down syndrome, dyslexia, depression, FPIES, apraxia, celiac disease, gluten allergy, autism, Tourette’s, and everything in-between or on the edges. If letters like OT, PT, SPT, SID, BA, CAS, and IEP read like a native language to you now… well, you have friends here.
Special-needs is not something our schools do particularly well. Nor, our churches. Honestly, our families aren’t always so great with it, either. You see other parents like you out there, but it can be hard to connect while wrangling the chaos of your other children, family, work, and every day life. And, let’s face it: some days, you just don’t want to have to talk about it any more. Explain it any more. Go back to the beginning one. more. time.
You don’t have to here.
This group is not a life commitment. We know you have a ridiculous load on your plate at the moment. It’s just a place where parents with special kids can share life together with a like-hearted community. A place where surely someone will know what you’re talking about. No one’s checking in on you. There are no forms to fill out. Just show up. Someone here needs you and your story.
There’s a facebook group right HERE that’s open for photos, posts, questions, encouragement, and daily life.
This blog will have posts especially for (in)Ablers, and those will be posted about twice a month- every other Wednesday (provided the children have not buried us alive and taken the animals hostage. No guarantees). You can find those posts by clicking on the (in)Able tag.
Leave a comment and say hello. It’s nice to finally meet you.
Grace and Peace to you today.
Katie and Kaylee
