disability.

heart and a heart full of love for my child with a disability.

On the fourth day of Christmas, the good Lord gave to me: a tear in my
eyes, an ache in my heart, and a heart full of love for my child with a

On the fifth day of Christmas, the good Lord gave to me: an unsuspected
strength for the tear in my eyes and the ache in my heart and my heart
full of love for my child with a disability.

SHARE your sense of pride, your appreciation of small accomplishments,
your remarkable doctors, your supportive friends, your sense of humor,
your ray of hope, your unsuspected strength for the tear in your eyes
and the ache in your heart and your heart full of love for you child
