Remembering the Others in the Family

june, aug 2010 266

Normally I don’t repost other people’s blogs here, but this is a very cool blog from a sister of a special needs child – it’s written by Elaine Marchenko the 15 year old daughter of Gillian Marchenko author of “Sun Shine Down”. As I read it, I thought of my own son and the small things I can do in the situation we’re in as far as taking care of my mother. Yes, caretaking and having children with special needs are very different circumstances, but making sure to take care of each family member who is left in the wash of caretaking anyone young or old is something we all need to remember.
