We're Signe and Elizabeth, two sisters with special needs families. Our kids have issues, so do our parents, grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles - all the way up the family tree. For a long time we marveled at how the special needs skipped us, but at some point we realized that we had issues too. We try to balance our children's special needs with their typical kids' wants, with varying results. We all have our good days and not so good days, and a few worthy of a "Cops" episode. But we keep going, and we keep writing.
We grew up in the country 15 miles east of Bismarck, North Dakota. We didn't get to town much, so then, as now, we were each other's best friends.
