Because I'm Special

Following my post on Nina's comment about her "sticky hands", we spoke with her teacher and they agreed to talk about each child's uniqueness in class.  For me, the advantage of a non-traditional school set-up is that matters like these can easily be addressed and incorporated into their lessons.

After that incident, she only asked me once: "Mommy, why are my hands sticky?" But she also followed it up with "Because I was born special?"

Sticky hands or not, we all agree that our children are special - with or without the presence of any disability.  But for parents who have to deal with more challenges than usual, it is but natural that they believe, with all their heart that their kiddos are doubly special than the rest.

Psalm 139:13-16For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
