Life has it's little surprises.

As my loyal blog readers would know my DS1, Hayden, is disabled.  Amoung many of the things that challenge his life, is his ability to socialise and make friends.  This does not seem to be an issue to him and we don't necessarily add it to the long list of other things that already are significant challenges. 

Anyway this little challenge means that he has no play dates or sleep overs or other invitations like other children.  He does not know that this happens for others so not a problem.   It was the biggest surprise then, when I get this phone call, out of the blue, from the parent of a child in Haydens special class inviting him to the birthday party of their son.  Well you could have knocked me over with a feather.  This is a first ever moment in Haydens after life that he has had such an invite.  (The after life is opposed the life he had before he suffered his medical event). I am pleased that this mother thinks that Hayden is friendly with her son.  Hayden was very excited to see he had got a letter in the post inviting him.

I guess that this will be a moment to remember. 

Life is full of unexpected little surprises.

Here is a page I made.  It might just explain how Hayden has no social skills.
