    I’d like to take some credit for teaching my other four children about their sibling’s non-disabled spirit, but in truth, it wasn’t me who taught them, it was my special son himself. My main goal has been to fill our home with love. I have fretted and worried about have I “taught this” and “emphasized that” and my list of “need to do’s” becomes overwhelming. When I focus on the singular task of simply filling our home with love, all of those other lessons teach themselves. One way we try to do this (and it is something we continually pour our thoughts into as situations change with each milestone, or lack there-of) is to find those things we can do as a family. Our list of things we can’t do grows longer everyday, but as we find those things we can do to enjoy a life of inclusion for our family in activities outside of our home, important lessons are taught to our other children as they appreciate the special spirit inside that fragile body of their brother.
