It won't Be Long Now...

It won't be long now before the trees start going up at the mall and the velvet chair comes out to greet the little ones (and Big ones in GP's case), and Autism Speaks just announced that it has partnered with Simon Property Group to offer children with special needs a time to go and meet up with the Big Guy. This is such a fantastic opportunity for parents to take their kiddos in and let them enjoy their visit without the pressures of "fitting in" and rushing them. 
I have so many stories that I could tell, but they all bring me to tears so I will just say Thank you, Autism Speaks and Simon PG. You have no idea how much this means to moms like me. 
Please share this information with any parent you know who has a child with disabilities. Let's not squander this wonderful gift of one on one time for our kiddos with Santa. 
For more info on this go to:
I'm so excited about this, and I'm sure I'm not alone.

That is wonderful!! Our county fair (which is a great fair) has a half a day that Special Needs kids (young and old) get in free (with family)and rides are slowed down a bit. They can ride as many and as long as they want. The fair people help with loading and unloading the rides. You can stay all day (which we do) but the rides are up to speed, but the fair people still take special care of our special kids.
