Community is so important especially in the special needs world. Community helps
feel a sense of belonging and helps answer the questions you have.
Sometimes you rather ask someone who understands (someone who has a child with
a similar disease/condition) instead of a doctor.
However, it is not always easy to find a community. There are support groups on
Facebook yet there aren’t always groups for the disease that person’s specific child has.
Also, some people aren’t on Facebook yet they still need to feel a sense of community.
There are blogs written by special needs moms and dads which can be very helpful
yet it might be hard to find one that is exactly what you are looking for.
When it is difficult to find a community, it can feel very isolating.
So when you see someone who needs extra support, smile at them.
And to the ones struggling to find a community, know you are not alone and we
at Hope Alive Ministry are there for you.
