If you’re partying with us this holiday season, you should read this… http://www.differentdream.com/2012/12/5-holiday-party-tips-to-welcome-kids-with-special-needs/
I’d like to add a bit to tip #5. In the two and half years that Sofija has been a part of our family we have declined several invitations or accepted invitations and then missed the party because we were in the middle of dealing with a meltdown. Everyone in our house thrives on social interaction and community. Just because we are not able to show up for a party or event does not in any way mean that we do not want to be there. So PLEASE keep inviting us! And if we do not make it, say a prayer for us. We need it.
