Recently I was asked to write an article for Frontline Initiative, a publication of the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals. The specifics of this issue are “Psychiatric disabilities and intellectual or developmental disabilities” – an area that I am very familiar with.
Today, I received my hard copies in the mail and would like to share my story of thanksgiving about two wonderful people (and their wonderful spouses) who “get” my son!
Gretchen and Thomas (maybe 2010?)
Kelly and Thomas at Thomas’ 15th Birthday Party – which also happened to be Mardi Gras that year!
Thomas and Alex at Christmas Eve Dinner Celebration 2010
Alex included Thomas in his wedding by asking Thomas to announce the closing Hymn.
“Lord of the Dance”
