First steps may come late . . .

. . . but for special needs parents, they are still sweet.  For some kids, the first steps never come at all, but other firsts arrive on their own unique schedule and we relish every one of them.

That said, there are steps parents should be taking as well.  I was reading a post this morning on a business blog called “51 Weeks of Pace: Leap!”   It was about a planning technique that requires you to start taking steps before you have THE PLAN, as they put it.  In otherwords, doing is sometimes more important than knowing everything first.

Ultimately, the writer, a business coach, challenged readers to ask themselves “what can I do to build my business today” and to make the answer a priority on their to do list.

It’s a challenge I give to parents – if you died today, would you have everything in place you need to give your child the best chance at a safe transition to new caregivers and the most financial security you have to offer?  

If the answer is no, then ask yourself, “what can I do today to make progress toward that goal,” and make your answer a priority on your own to do list.

If you don’t know what to do to make that progress, you can read through or listen to the resources in this blog, or give my office a call and schedule an appointment to talk about where you are, where you need to be, and how you can get there.  We help families all over the state of Texas, and we can help yours too.
