For my retreat it says to bring a picture of your child or children to hang up. I don't know if they are thinking of just the child with special needs or all of our children. Do I bring one with all of mine or just my son who has special needs son. Also, it gets me thinking if they meant children as in Mom's with more than one child with special needs.. I wonder how they manage it.

I spend my morning buying some pj's and a sweatshirt for the late walks. Some shoes just in case mine get dirty. I am bringing some soda with me. I am basically all packed and ready to go.
I am a little nervous. I am 25 years of age and have never been anywhere without my family. I am so happy that my husband is driving me. I would hate to get lost.

I can't stand it when people aren't clear with directions.

I'd bring a picture of each. One with all your children and one of just your special needs son. Then you can see what others are doing, or what feels right in the moment.

Thanks Jen, I decided to bring my whole mini album that I created after my kids met Izzy for the first time. So, either way, I will be prepared.

I hope the retreat goes well for you. A retreat always seems like a very, very good thing.
