A few months ago, I had the pleasure of guest blogging for the Our Land feature on Finding Ninee. I realized I’ve never shared that post with my readers. So, here’s a little bit of it:
I have two children with special needs. I’m still getting used to saying that and I never know quite how I’m supposed to do it. Do I say, “I have three children, but only two of them have special needs?” Is it more appropriate to say, “Two out of my three children have special needs?” Is what I really mean; “Only one of my three kids doesn’t have special needs?”
It’s a strange phrase anyway. I mean, synonyms for the word “special” include words like unusual, different, unique, and individual. Given that definition, don’t all kids have special needs?
