History and core values
As we were living in Taiwan, we realized that there were many other families with children that have special needs, and they seemed very discouraged and hopeless. In Taiwan, it is still often seen as an embarrassment or shame to have children that are not "perfect." We were able to have great conversations with other parents and realized that there was a void that we could fill. Because we have a special needs child ourselves, there is an automatic "heart to heart" connection. We could relate to them, encourage them, cry with them, learn with them, and, most importantly, tell them about the HOPE that we have. . .
