A Preview of Faith Anne’s Story

We go through so many difficult times as a special needs parent, especially with a disorder no one understands. There is nothing more amazing than knowing a child with special needs, they teach you how to appreciate the things we all stop paying attention to s a child; like the shape of a cloud, or the sound of the birds. We should all be as lucky as Faith to see the world the way is meant to be seen; with love and an open heart.

A Preview of Noah Dennis’ Story

The door swung open, and the words I will never forget came spewing from his mouth like he was so detached from me that my feelings did not matter. ” your child has a rare disorder called Schizencephaly. He is missing part of his brain, and we are sending you to counseling now.” The door shut and I watched my husband drop his head. That was the first time I ever saw him cry.

A Preview of Carroll Sequin’s Story

The doctor told me I had Schizencephaly. He explained the gist of the disorder to me and said I needed to see a neurologist to get further details. I left there in tears and feeling very alone. I was unsure what to think, but at least I finally had some answers to my 20 year long journey.
