Parenting a child with special needs is difficult emotionally, physically, and financially. But every family is special in their own way.

The responses may be friendly or may be stand-off-ish. Since every family is special in their own way, we’ve learned to not expect anything and to go with the flow.
Have you ever been surprised at other people reactions? What did that feel like?
