Thanksgiving Adventures with Extended Families - Childhood Disability
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art69514.asp
Our Thanksgiving adventures may more closely resemble a television high drama or situation comedy than heartwarming holiday special. Sometimes the greatest challenges we face have less to do with a child's diagnosis or special needs than it does with our own childhood relationships.

Wishing you and your family a safe, satisfying and wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
