Sharing “I CAN!” attitudes: Ethan & Maxwell Brothers
~ Andrea Gallo (Proud Mom)
I know that to most mothers my proudest moments of my children might seem strange. You see, I have two children; one who is “normal”, whatever that means…and that makes me proud of each of my kids in dramatically different ways.

I sometimes get the urge to compare my sons and to focus on what is lacking in one or the other. The key to my happiness is being proud of the little things instead.
