how is that special having a special needs child? that definition needs to be chnaged becasue any parent I know with a special needs child feels anything but special. They feel cursed, piseed, angry, less than special. They don't feel bleesed or whatever. They deal with it like you would cancer. Okay fine I have cancer it sucks but oh well. We don't call cancer special, its terrible, its ugly, its bad, and we try and rid ourselves of it. What is so special about special needs?
