"We didn't know about Shahad's Williams Syndrome condition at birth, but as a mother, I knew the first minute she looked at me. I was scared and told the Doctor to run a Gene Test. They did for both sisters and it came out negative; but yet I felt that there was still something wrong. She wouldn't stop crying and her coloring was changing a lot.
.
.
We took the twins to their first doctor follow up appointment at one month old. He said the first twin was fine, but he heard a heart murmur in Shahad. He said it was probably nothing, but that we should come back the following month for another echo. I started researching online and I found the Williams Syndrome condition. Some of the kids looked like her, and I was furious! My husband accused me of being crazy and paranoid, but I trusted my feelings. I insisted to take her outside Kuwait for further check up and so we took her overseas to New York.
.
.
She was almost three months old when we arrived in NY. They did another gene test for her and my nightmare was confirmed. She had Williams Syndrome. I remember crying every single day during our three months stay in NY. Looking back, I'm really sorry that I didn't accept my daughter's diagnosis in the beginning. I was Googling alot which made it worse for me. I even neglected her twin sister and left her with her aunt during our traveling.
.
.
Shahad is the best thing that happened in my life. I realized how strong I am because of her. She taught us not to scream, because she is sensitive to noises. She loves music and she has a beautiful smile. She brightens up the room when she enters it.
.
.
Shahad is about 5 years old now, and yet she doesn't talk, but I understand everything she wants when she looks at me. I take her almost everyday to a rehabilitation institute which has helped her a lot in her development. I never missed a doctor appointment and I'm a working mother. My hands are full, especially after I had my recent baby daughter Sara. God has a strange way of working things out. Shahad has her twin sister and a baby sister to take care of her and teach her stuff. They do everything together.

As a mother of a child with Special Needs I find it very disturbing for a program intended to provide a safe haven for our special needs community to use our children for political gain. Where is the privacy? Thank you Milagros Vincente for brining this issue to light. #SpecialNeedsAdvocate

After our first attempt to put together our own kit and a huge fail we decided to go with the prebuilt model from Target. Fun night decorating and Luke was into making each candy detail just perfect. ❤️🎄❤️ #MerryChristmas #Christmas2017

Jeremy’s introduction to David’s House stems back a few years.
.
Jeremy grew up attending the Bowl-A-Thon and other David’s House functions in support of his great uncle Wally, a former House 2 resident. Between family ties and working the special needs week at @cranhillranch, Jeremy felt pulled toward serving people who live life with developmental disabilities. He worked as a direct care provider in House 2 for several years before accepting a house manager position within the home.
.
“I enjoyed spending time with people with special needs,” Jeremy comments about his beginnings as a direct care staff member. “I thought it was fun. A good cause. But I’ve moved from strictly ‘caring for’ residents to also finding ways to dignify them and encourage independence.”
.
Now serving as the manager of House 1 and soon to be undertaking a service coordinator role for the Shalom Springs apartments, Jeremy’s multi-faceted experience at David’s House has exposed him to the operational needs of the ministry—fundamentally, the need for increased capacity that is gradually being met through the #BuildingForHope expansion project. When completed, 36 more individuals will have a new home at David’s House.
.
“There’s a big need that I’m glad we’re trying to help with. Roles will inevitably change as we grow. Our staff will look a lot different and will become much larger. But, ultimately, the growing pains are so worth the need that is present here.”
.
When you support David’s House this year-end, you’re not just caring for the 36 residents living in our four homes: you’re expanding the capacity and staffing of David’s House so that even more adults with special needs can be cared for by compassionate, carefully-selected staff like Jeremy. Make your year-end gift today at dhmin.org/donate.

“When I first started here, I really loved caring for the residents. Over time, though, my mindset has turned more toward helping them live full lives.”

Austin had his first high school choir performance last night! When we got there, he wanted me to walk with him to where his choir was meeting before his performance. When we got to the door, he gave me a kiss on the check, and told me I could go find a seat. Then he straightened his bow tie, walked into the room, put his arms up, and said “I’m here! Look at me!” Almost every kid in the room shouted “Austin’s here” and hurried over to see him. Moments like this make me wish we had some sort of infinite video camera in our eyes so we could play these moments over and over. He is so loved ❤️ #savedownsyndrome #downsyndrome #downrightperfect #theluckyfew #disabilityawareness #disabilityadvocate #specialneeds #specialneedsawareness #specialneedsadvocate #motivation #happiness #morealikethandifferent  #exploreeverything #calledtobecreative #advocate #lovecolorfully  #inclusionmatters #smile #life #nonprofit #inspiration #lovelife #downrightperfect #theluckyfew #thelittlestwarrior #inclusion #savedownsyndrome #downsyndrome #ndss #ndsc #disabilityrights #endlawsyndrome

On this wonderfully snowy day, David's House residents decorated tree ornaments for their pen pals at Rockford Christian (@grcschools)! Clear plastic orbs, acrylic paint and a little bit of shaking does the trick ✨

My time is almost up for tutoring hours. Can't believe how fast this semester has gone by. I've worked with these incredible individuals. I loved every moment I helped in the class. I'm going to miss them after next week. I'll just stop by during lunch next semester to see them.

It takes positive willingness to stretch one's perspective to meet a person with special needs where they are. Once you build that relationship, the depth of love you can receive is amazingly rich- Patricia Omoqui, Thought Dr. ------------------------

Another photo that won’t be on the Christmas Card. 
Before I met Mr. Right, I dreamt often of what my family would look like one day. The only part that happened is that I married a dark headed guy. The rest was never my vision. I thought I wanted girls. I wanted them when I was young (we married at 29 and 32 and waited to have kids). I certainly didn’t want special needs. I wanted to be living in Fairhope, AL. I’m so glad God doesn’t give us all our wants. Because my wants would have never led me to a life this good.

This woman right here is heaven sent! My oldest son has special needs...he learns differently than other kids. It may take him 5-6 times before he gets a concept, but when he does, it’s a wrap! He’s extremely intelligent...but it takes the RIGHT people to see his true potential and pull it out...to see him and not his limitations. @fathicandice with @marvelvillage has been working with him for a year and she speaks to the 97% of his brain (school system only deals with 3%). She pulls out the GENIUS in him in every conversation...he knows she believes in him. Last night, she consulted him to help her create a success system for Loudoun County kids with special needs to be successful in school and get the support they need from their teachers, case managers, principal, and parents. What an honor for him to be apart of this process! Talk about legacy for both of them. She is truly a blessing and walking in her purpose! #purpose #blessings #favor #familyiseverything #specialneeds #marvelvillage #singlemom #specialneedsadvocate

To the boy who turned our worlds upside down.  Who's life began in a room full of tears, screams and why me's. To the little guy who I thought I didn't want.  Man oh man I am so glad you are mine.  I wish everyone could experience a little bit of you for just a little bit of time.  I have no doubt if they could then the world would find you worthy of your life and worthy of being in their lives.  Keep shining your light my wonderful boy.  Keep being the cherry on the top of our family cake. Life is better with you. And everyday with you in it is a better day because of you.

This morning I called @russparrshow @georgiaalfredas to comment on #bullying and how to stop it. I hope my comment reached the right people!  Kids do what they see at home. If parents are laughing at these #comedians making fun of people with #specialneeds, their kids will make fun of them too!  Bullying, and its acceptance, is a vicious cycle that starts in the home!

Last Thursday night, I had the great pleasure of sponsoring a local special family event: Spectacular Kids Night!

Spectacular Kids Night - promoting Autism / IDD awareness and supporting families of children with special needs - was held at Cicis pizza rockville

This event provided a time to enjoy a discounted meal with your family, an opportunity to network and get to know other parents, caretakers & community members as well as police officers that share a desire to create Autism/IDD awareness in the community!  I personally liked that the Police Officers in attendance were able to observe so many different individuals on the spectrum at the same time.  This was a learning opportunity in a fun / relaxed setting.

This event is the brainchild of a local autism dad, @daddy2dot0 who had a negative experience with his family at a restaurant awhile back.  In order to reach & teach others, he partnered with our local police department to present these special outings. 
As you will see in the pictures, Sneak and Tap had a blast at the event - especially interacting with the puppets!  My buddy @aboycalledpatches and his friends joined us for the evening as well. We also met up with our friends, Shanté & Dylan of @facingautism (Dylan fell in LOVE with Niah the puppet!) Thank you to Toy Kingdom llc for providing a gift for all of our children!
Keep up the great work, Ryan!

David was five months old when an accident halted the oxygen flow to his brain.
.
Though he’s faced over 36 years with physical limitations, David successfully completed high school and soon after began working as a teacher aide at Rockford Christian School—a position he’s held for over 16 years. With a job he excelled in and his dad working alongside him as the school’s facilities manager, David was developing rhythms and enjoying life. But when February of this year brought the unexpected passing of his dad, David was left without a home and primary caregiver.
.
David’s three siblings maintained his care in their father’s absence. Several group homes were considered as long-term care solutions for David, but none adequately provided the care and living environment that suited his needs.
.
“It’s been a roller coaster,” David says. “But I trust God fully. I talk to him as often as I can.”
.
Amidst a long and tumultuous year, David will soon have a new home at David’s House.
.
When you support David’s House, you’re not just providing quality foster care and facilities for 36 adults with special needs: you’re broadening the reach of our ministry so even more people like David can have a home and a refuge. Make your year-end gift today at dhmin.org/donate.

When asked how he felt about the chance to join the David’s House community, David grinned.
.
“I can’t wait.”

For the past two years, I got the pleasure of traveling all over the United States making magic with this guy. At the end of September, I went from being an employee to be contracted so that I could focus on building my consulting business. It's been an adventure. However, I miss traveling with self-advocates and working magic. So in 2018 on top of life coaching and communication consulting I am adding speakers management to my list! If you know a self-advocate looking to add a few public speaking events a year to their list, I am currently taking applications. I only have a few more spots left, and the application will close the beginning of January. You can send an email to LoriKayFierro@gmail.com for more information

As we reflect on #fbf, it is truly an honor to serve as a #SpecialNeedsAdvocate last weekend for #HVFF ! There were many conversations &/ smiles of appreciation that truly brought overwhelming tears to our eyes as we took on this important role of #compassion & #kindness all weekend long. #EternalGratitude for letting us serve in this capacity with such an experienced team(u know who u are😘) #HVFFSJ! We definitely enjoyed ourselves throughout the entire event and obtained a signature from an actor we have been following for a few years who made an appearance at the San Jose event.

Happy holidays to all! #makeadifference #payitforward #SeasonOfGiving #love #smile #time #presence #notjustpresents🎁 #heartisfull 😍 #TravelingWithKids #MiAmorEternal #travel #WhereIsYourNext 🙏🏽❤️🌎

Each of our four homes throws an annual Christmas party. Houses 2 and 4 held a conjoined celebration last night in our community room, complete with Christmas carols, delicious food, a reading of the Christmas story from Luke 2 and a resident gift exchange. How beautiful it is to see our residents delighting in this season of joy and hope!

Advent Photo Challenge Day 5.  Something Stressful.  Getting people to understand my life as a special needs Mom.  I don't know why I feel as if I always have to explain myself or why I let it bother me so much.  For example, people have been asking me what I do with my time when the girls are in school.  I know its just conversation, but I feel the need to explain that I don't get to do MOPS or Brunch or Spa Days.  I do have a part time home job and when I am not doing that I get to be a special needs advocate for my daughter working on this stack of medical bills and claims. (Thats just 2017, btw). This is all prob one of my husband's biggest pet peeves about me.  He always says I worry too much about others and their opinions don't matter.  He is right.  I need to put more focus on what truly matters. .

The giving spirit is alive and well at David's House this season. Instead of asking for Christmas gifts, Bekki has kindly requested her friends and family to help her accumulate toys for @wzzm13's Toys for Tots​ drive. Way to go, Bekki!
.
Bekki will be gathering unwrapped toys for the drive until December 16. If you feel like contributing to her efforts, send us a message for more details!
