It's Sucker Punch Season for Special Needs Families

Graduation and awards ceremonies give the Right Hook. Yearbook signings throw a left jab. Prom pictures deliver an upper cut.

Sucker punches are those moments we think we are fine, but BAM out of nowhere something hits a tender place we did not know existed.

What about me?

Recently, you read stories of a Midwest Tribe of friends who were part of a winter survival strategy. They sounded amazing, right? 

When we moved to California I knew I would miss my friends, but assumed establishing a West Coast Tribe would happen easily. 

The assumption was finding folks to settle into doing life with its mess, mistakes, and bad choices would arrive with the furniture truck.
