It’s a Beautiful Life

Cooper 61

I have said for many years that my son Cooper has give me the gift of sight.

He is always showing me things.

He will stop. Pause. Point. Gasp. Cheer. Clap. Even high five.

The moon. A cloud. A train. Tractor. Cow. Bird. Christmas lights. A pumpkin. A man with a beard who looks like Santa. A sign for Target. A commercial for Starbucks.

It’s amazing really. These little glimpses into his world and the things he loves.

He has taught me to pause and to see. It’s a beautiful life when we finally learn to do that.

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.
