The moment you hear you are going to be a parent is a life changing moment. The anticipation and birth of a child is a celebration. A time filled with great joy. BUT sometimes life throws in an extra chromosome or an impairment that catches us off guard. Like all children, our babies with special needs are still cherished and present unique challenges for a new parent.
Dealing with an infant who is born with a disability might be overwhelming in the beginning, but with a little love and guidance it is possible to enjoy this childhood stage. Thankfully, in the last couple of decades, modern technology has advanced and allowed a myriad of opportunities for parental empowerment when it comes to raising a child with disabilities.
