I created Rare Gems to share my experiences and insights on being a parent of a child with specials needs. This blog is intended not only for the parents and loved ones of children with disabilities and other special health care needs, but also for those seeking to better understand children with special needs and the lives of those who care for them.
Why is this blog called Rare Gems?
I feel that all children are “gems.” However, our special needs gems are not “cut” quite like any other gem in the world. Whether it’s an extra chromosome, autism, a missing chromosome or a learning disability, our rare gems need extra special help to learn, grow and thrive.
