"normal"

I felt I better explain about my use of "normal" in Jonathan's update. We love it when medical professional, teachers, friends, and yes some family use the word "normal" when speaking of Jonathan or others with special needs. We laugh and say what is "normal"? Are they "normal" and by who's standards? So, this is what the dictionary says about "normal"

normal
* usual or ordinary

OK, that sums it up our WHOLE FAMILY isn't "normal".

Don't feel any different. Our family is not normal either. I often refer to my children as exceptional since I read the poem on Renee's blog.

Missing you. I'll email you. I still have to post the blog award.

Love Theresa
