Planning for the future.
As we get older, we are starting to "adjust" our future plans and dreams. As we were preparing to have a family, never did we expect to have a child with special needs. We had to make some major life changes and plans then but as they get older (and we get older) that seems to happen again. When raising a child with a disability, not only do you change but your future changes as well. When your children are young, many are not concerned with the future. Problem is, they become teenagers before you know it. As we continue to watch our children get older, we are quickly realizing that we need a plan in place for our entire family.
