It's not uncommon for families with special needs kids to find a place to worship.  I've had many parents share painful stories that their place of worship does not accept their child.  This breaks my heart!

I am so grateful that my clergy have always welcomed my children.  It doesn't matter what religion I am - it only matters that we are accepted as a family.  We come as a package and are always welcomed as a package.  Shouldn't every place of worship be like that?

Dear Hanes......

I realize you have been in business since 1901 and clearly, you are very successful at manufacturing great products.  I love your products but need to let you know how your changes in design affect special needs children like mine.  I hope you don't mind me sharing my thoughts with you.  I want your company to be in touch with consumers like me because it's important that you know how we feel.

One of our favorite shows is on The Disney Channel.  It's a great kids show and while most of the kids are academically smart, one of the kids is not the brightest when it comes to common sense.  In many ways, the show is like my world.  But that's another blog entry.

Hot temperatures, humidity and rain - welcome to Houston!  Yes - we have our share of dry summers but lately, rain has been in our forecast.

One of the BEST parts about Ryan's summer social skills programs is the field trips.  The teachers are fabulous and the real life experiences they take the kids on are invaluable.  They ride the Metro bus, go to restaurants, grocery stores, staffing agencies, the local college and more.

There are so many rituals in my house that I can't keep track.  And while I know Ryan thrives on each one of them there are times when the ritual has to be modified because this is part of life.  He will survive and while it may seem earth shattering to him - I reassure him that he will be okay.

Most things don't surprise me but some days - I'm really caught off guard.

I was watching TV with Ryan and there was a commercial for deodorant.  It was for women and he started to laugh.  I couldn't understand what he was laughing at.

It breaks my heart that Ryan is pulling his hair out again.  Our first episode was in Elementary School and it was awful.  He had a huge stripe down the center of his forehead. It broke my heart that he had so much anxiety or OCD that it manifested itself in this way.  Finally, the hair grew back and the episodes since have not been nearly as severe.

I know that for many kids, the end of the school year is a welcome relief.  Burned out from homework, exams, research papers and projects - the kids are excited to finally relax.  While Ryan eagerly awaits the end of school, it's not as though he had a ton of homework, papers to write or projects to complete.  In fact, he had very little.

Sometimes that breakdown in communication can be so frustrating.  Show me the mother of a teenager who is having trouble telling his mother what he needs and I'll show you 20 mothers who are having trouble.  Show me the mother of a teenager with autism who is having trouble and I'll show you 60 mothers who are having trouble.  All teenagers can have their moments and have trouble explaining what they want.  But kids like Ryan have even more moments.
What a great summer!
