For Squirt - An Our Land Guest Post



I remember the first day she walked into my classroom.  She was a little bitty, but adorable.  She had big, bright eyes that shone from behind her little glasses.  She was a bundle of spunk and energy, bouncing from one thing to the next and smiling all the while.  She didn't know she had special needs.  She was the very definition of joy.  She made a lot of progress in my classroom that year.  After meeting her, my husband affectionately nicknamed her "Squirt."

Squirt was indeed a special little girl who would end up making more of an impact on my life than I could have ever imagined the first time I met her.  I am truly honored to share her story today over on the Our Land series at Finding Ninee today.  On her blog, Kristi writes about parenthood and life through the eyes of her son, Tucker, who is on the autistic spectrum but does not have an "official" diagnosis.  The Our Land series was started after Kristi wrote this post entitled "The Land Of Empathy and Wonder."  It was so powerful and got such a supportive response, she decided to turn it into a series that is now filled with many powerful, poignant, well-written posts.  Again, I do truly consider it an honor to be included in such a wonderful group of writers and such a powerful collection of stories.

I do hope that you will come on over and spend some time reading my post as well as all of the other ones that have been featured!
