This past weekend Jess over at Don’t Mind The Mess contacted me to ask if I’d be willing to write a guest post for her friend, Jen at Living Life With a Side of Autism, who was looking for a perspective from someone who’d had to make the choice to put a special needs child into a home. I was honored at the invitation and agreed to write about Jenna. I have written about her before and have shared her story but that was a long time ago. To delve into all that again was a touch on the emotional side for me. Mark had never read what I originally wrote and since that was the logical starting point for the post I was doing for Jen I decided to have him read it. After not thinking about the trials of that time for so long, it hit him a little harder than I expected and I probably should have warned him what the content was. Oops.
Here’s my girl! She’s doing so well. Her caregivers are awesome! Her roommates are great. I couldn’t have asked for a better situation for Jenna. She has medical staff on hand 24/7. She seems genuinely happy to be there.
If you’re interested, head on over to Jen’s blog and check out my guest post. It’ll be up some time today. This was a first for me! I hope it’s not a huge disappointment.
