Valetine's Day Cards for Special Parents

I saw this and loved it. Check out the website here and see lots more to chose from. I thought this was great for other parents of special needs kids or even your husband!!!

here's an example of one of them (well the text at least)

Your child's progress might not be that easy to see on a day-to-day basis, but when you reflect from time to time on how far he or she has come, give yourself some credit: Would that progress have happened if you hadn't been planning, praying, pushing for it? Everything you do for your child -- every appointment, every therapy, every intervention, but also every smile, every hug, every conversation -- makes a difference. But you're also making a difference in the world. Every time you give information about your child's disability to an educator, you make a difference for the next child. Every time you give advice in a support group or online forum, you make a difference for that parent and family. You are a force for good.

I would have cried for a week if a friend of mine had given this to me. Its so nice when you feel like you are doing something that is making some type of difference. These are printable by the way.

So Happy Valetines Day for all you mommies who are making a difference out there !!!!
