Other Families Live This Too

sophia_tbnSophia was born with omphalocele, a birth defect of the abdominal wall, which required immediate surgery. Sophia has had multiple physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges. A hospital social worker referred Sophia’s mother, Sharon, to Raising Special Kids. Sharon felt encouraged by “the reassurance that other families live this too. There are places ready and willing to help and resources are available.”Even though Sharon has a background in special education, she welcomed Raising Special Kids’ assistance when it came time to prepare her daughter’s IEP. It was helpful to have assistance in getting appropriate services,” she explained. Help Raising Special Kids serve more families like Sharon’s. Make a donation today.
