Since this week’s theme seems to be ‘crazy’ (both in good ways and bad), I thought I would share this powerful video that I saw recently.  It takes a hard, but honest look at what some special siblings experience ‘growing up special.’

Check out Alicia Arenas talk about “Glass Children” at TEDx San Antonio.

While my experience growing up with Alyssa was primarily positive, it is never easy living with a special sibling.  Alicia’s story, though different from mine, still had me nodding in agreement at many of the similarities.

Sometimes our crazy, special life is a good story.  Sometimes it’s not.  It’s important that we recognize both sides of crazy.
