Special Needs Parent

My interview with Special Needs Parent was posted today if you'd like to read it. Thanks, Michele, for all the work you're doing helping kids with disabilities and their parents.

Your interview was an encouragement to me today. Especially the reminder of this tension:
"That it's hard. That it's worth it. That it's hard. That it's worth it..."

Your comment about stopping seeing the Down Syndrome in Ian made me smile at the faithfulness of God in your life and also how he designed us to feel and experience that kind of love, too, in our own limited ways in a fallen world. That statement is a beautiful picture to me.

Good interview responses Tom. Really liked it.

Great interview. Especially love the "plastic man" analogy. Around here it feels like just as we get comfortable with the position we have been stretched or twisted into something else comes along to pull and yank and twist some more. And like you, we feel it is totally worth it.

Well done, young jedi. The force is strong in this one. . .

that's a really good interview :)

i don't remember "plastic man" but i remember one almost exactly like it called "stretch armstrong"

:)

Tom said...

eclexia: thanks, and just for the record, I hate living in the tension. :)

lint: thanks

carole: appreciate it

walden: Of course, I left my Plastic Man out in the sun and he got all crusty and hard. Hope that isn't a picture of whats to come. :)

elbog: Did you say the Schwartz is strong with this one? :)

ana: thanks.. and I remember Str. Armstrong. But I think Plastic Man could totally beat him in a fight. :)

Great interview - really enjoyed it.

Your reference to plastic man, however, had me thinking about Meg's ability to place both feet flat against her ears :)

Tom said...

kim: Ian is all about his feet these days. Appreciate the compliment.

Tom, Yeah, I didn't suppose you actually enjoyed the tension. But still, it helped me for you to put words to it....
