November 9 2012 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


Our hearts go out to all those affected by the terrible storm Sandy.

At this time, many neighborhoods are still without power, and some areas have experienced great destruction and the loss of homes and whole neighborhoods.

Stories like these amaze me:
UnconVENTional Aid: Helping Nick Dupree, Social Networking Style
Nick Dupree & his partner Alejandra were both in Manhattan. It was impossible for any nurses to come provide care for Nick. Nick & Alejandra had lost power. This wasn’t good at all.

Jessica Giddens was escorted by her father, retired Col. John Giddens. Is this the same man who was commander of the 249th General Hospital at Bagram in 2005?
"I was very honored to walk with my daughter across that field, just to hear the crowd scream for her when they announced her name sent a well of emotions up through me," described Retired Col. John Giddens, Jessica's father.

BAGRAM AIR BASE, Afghanistan — The population of Afghanistan grew slightly Saturday, thanks in part to a pair of Black Hawk crews and a 25-year-old flight medic from Wiesbaden, Germany.
Army Spc. Kyle Storbakken helped an Afghan mother deliver a healthy 6˝-pound baby while aboard the Black Hawk flying to the U.S. military base Salerno.
“This was my first delivery,” Storbakken said via a phone interview from Salerno, a remote base a few hours away by helicopter from Bagram.
It was the first such delivery that anyone associated with the current medical mission in country had knowledge of. Col. John Giddens, the commander of the 249th General Hospital at Bagram, said most Afghans the hospital sees are those critically injured by mines, accidents or attacks by anti-coalition forces.
“It’s very nice to have a joyful emergency coming through our doors,” he said. ...

I was so moved by this mother's story. Many thanks to Lorraine C. Ladish
for sharing her view, and to Eliana Tardio for sending me there.
