A Place Where We Don’t Have to Apologize

cooper 20

Good morning from our last day at camp!

It’s hard for me to even put into words how much this weekend meant to me.

A place where my son could try all the activities alongside his brothers without pressure or judgement.

A place where we haven’t had to apologize once.

A place where everyone understands. And no one cares.

I can’t wait to share more video with you today. Because my son, the one who adores watching other kids play and try, but rarely joins, went down a zip line! And a giant, and I mean giant, water slide. And line danced with a whole group of kids on stage.

Video coming later today!

Finding Cooper’s Voice is a safe, humorous, caring and honest place where you can celebrate the unique challenges of parenting a special needs child. Because you’re never alone in the struggles you face. And once you find your people, your allies, your village….all the challenges and struggles will seem just a little bit easier.
