It was destiny that I met Tricia.....I met her through her Mom, Yvette at church.....I believed in God, but wasn’t overly religious....I was struggling or grasping at anything for my child to healed of Autism. Tricia was a pure example of faith, God and religion. Tricia went on to create our group for Special Needs Parents; this group has been together for seven years......while some have come and gone in our group we are forever intertwined.

What this group means to me.....it means opening my heart up, crying and saying whatever comes to mind without judgment. This group of special needs parents are my best friends that will help me when I am in need, and they know when to boost me up or each other up. Being part of this group has allowed me to grow as a Christian, to have a relationship with God, don’t get me wrong I have my ups and downs, but this group brings me into reality. As I have grown to have a relationship with God, I realize having a special needs child is a gift, full of joy and heartache.....with lots of emotions. I am thankful I have this group to share this with.

I recently bought a sign with a saying that sums up our group:

THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A REASON WHY YOU MEET PEOPLE
EITHER YOU NEED THEM
TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE
OR YOU’RE THE ONE THAT
WILL CHANGE THEIRS

I truly believe I needed them to change mine.
I love them all and will be forever grateful.

Testimonies to Planting Hope

Theresa Hereford, Mom to Samuel

Few people willingly enter the world of special needs parenting. Most of us have lived our lives naively ignorant that it even exists. Until one day we find ourselves flailing and gasping for breath having been catapulted into this strange, new land. Few other life experiences have such a far reaching impact on the lives of a family than to be thrust into the special needs community. Though the circumstances may vary, there are common characteristics of those who are living in this reality.

I’ve really enjoyed our special needs small group. It is so refreshing to be around other moms that “get it” and understand our lives. Even though we may not know each other very well at first, there seems to be an instant connection. We can talk, vent, share without judgment or without blank stares of not understanding what we are talking about. It’s kind of like having a support group to help each other through the challenges of having a special needs child. We lean on each other and support each other in whatever we are going through. Every special needs mom needs that and our group provides just that.
