Two Moms Spreading Awareness About Life With High Support Special Need Kids, Connecting Other Parents, And Finding The Humor In The Experience. Jamie de Grasse and Pam Shipley are two moms who were thrown into advocacy for their special needs children. The de Grasse and Shipley Families live in the same neighborhood and two of their children are in the same Special Education program at the local school. Pam and Jamie often find themselves laughing over coffee, and thought it would be a great way to spread awareness to the more severe side of Autism and Cerebral Palsy by creating a lighthearted blog.
