    It's Sometimes Worse When They Look 'normal'

    It is challanging, especially when you're just coming to terms with you child's unexpected limitations (temporary or permanent) and diaganosis yourself. But I've seen this one a couple of times, up close - with my brother and now my son. Some children can look physically...
