About

me-about-image
I have taken care of my brother, who has special needs, for the past 30 years, living in East Tennessee. I have experienced my fair share of education, healthcare, & legal difficulties concerning his welfare. I have seen a lack of communication & reliable information for caregivers as well as special needs individuals. I wanted to start a site where other’s can share their stories, concerns, information & resources about their everyday life. I want this site to be a building block for connections to other special needs families & individuals.
