A New Year at Praying for Parker!


We are looking at a New Year here at Praying for Parker with lots of thoughtful planning and excitement for a new start.

My biggest goal for this New Year at Praying for Parker is to offer up posts that include inspiration, great ideas and a sense community for families of children with special needs, while helping ‘typical’ families gain a bit of insight into what life with a diagnosis is truly like.

If you have any topics you’d like me and Parker to address, feel free to leave them in the comments section below or email me at hods5mom@aol.com.

I’m working to bring you some great giveaways geared to kids with special needs and the families that love them as well as typical families.  Some may still view ‘special needs’ as being a niche within a niche.  Reality is that special needs families love and use the exact same type of stuff typical families love and use.

We’ll continue homeschooling Parker, his blenderized diet, and our advocating too.

Parker and I will be checking in and out over the next few days. Then we’ll be back to business January 1st.

We’re so glad you’ll be here to join us!

PS:  It’s going to be a great year at Simply Preparing too.  Parker and will be writing on topics to help get your family prepared for emergencies of both the natural and man made type.
