Special Needs Means Extra Special
Special Needs Means Extra Special

My three year old grandson Ben and I have shared a very special past three years together. From 3 months of age until now, we have spent every Thursday hanging out, playing, going on trips and just having a good time! Ben does not realize it but alot of our "play" was helping him become the marvelous, strong little boy who can now walk and color and dance all around. Thank YOU Ben for teaching this Grandma all about patience because acceptance and love were already there from the moment I first laid eyes on you sweet boy. I love you Ben! From Grandma Pam
