I didn’t realize until we finally adopted one of our own why every family needs a dog. They’re the ultimate pet for fun, protection and love.
We are surrounded by the mommy wine culture daily. Shirts that say “I run on coffee and wine.” The normalization of alcoholism is a problem.
I hear all the time how “normal” my son seems and looks of surprise when people meet him. I worry about him because his special needs are almost invisible.
Literally everyone will tell you how hard it is. Our own mothers and fathers were among the first to remind us during some tumultuous moment in our upbringing that we weren’t delivered with manuals.
