Erik's friend Sophie (also with WS) was the subject of a post on a local blog yesterday. After reading this wonderful description of how she appears to someone outside the strange world of WS, I thought it was important to share. Yeah, it's tough being mired in all of this special needs stuff on a daily basis, but this illustrates how important it is to stop and watch how the rest of the world reacts to our special children. They have a profound effect on the lives they touch.
I plan on stepping back and looking through someone else's eyes on a regular basis, especially when I am feeling sorry for myself!

. Thanks to Sophie's mother Heather for e-mailing me the link and to Wilson Parrish for writing such a dear piece on my son's friend! I hope Erik will get to sit next to someone as kind as his son someday.
