Those in the know understand the complexities of raising a child with special needs and that of being a full time carer. Parents who are further down the track (like me) also understand the importance of having an interest in something that doesn't have anything to do with disability. Whether we are able to separate ourselves and be able to focus on a particular interest/hobby is another story! :)
For me, photography has been such a gift. Each day I spend a small pocket of time capturing an image. The journey has been challenging, however, I am making slow and steady progress.... a bit like my parenting!
Do you have an interest that helps you cope with all that is going on in your life?
