Grandkids’ Artwork

  • Grandkids’ Artwork

One of the problems when raising disabled children is, most people focus upon their weaknesses and either don’t recognize mentally challenged people have strengths, or choose to dismiss them. When my two mentally disabled granddaughters discovered I was blogging about my experiences as a Grandmother raising Grandchildren they asked if they could blog a post, (after I explained what a blog was). I thought about it, and remembered one of their strengths is artwork and asked them to paint some pictures, and then I would take photos of their art and load them to this post. So, enjoy!
