Special Kids, Special Needs, Special Families

Thank you to Tom Fox and his friend Joe for directing my attention to a thought provoking article and video at Newsweek on the topic of Bipolar disorder in children. This article and others I have read are a constant reminder to me that so many families need our help, support and prayers. It's very easy to be judgmental of families with children whose behavior doesn't fall into the norm. "Why can't they get it together?" we may think, without truly knowing their circumstances. Please take a few moments to watch Max's video and then contemplate whether or not you may know of a family who needs extra support and encouragement from you. One helpful aspect of the Newsweek piece are these resources for Parents of Bipolar Children.
