A few weeks after Everett was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, I started following some minimalist accounts. In that time, I’ve learned a lot about minimalism. I’ve also been slowly building a list of so many reasons we should simplify our lives because we have a child with a disability.
This list has immediate benefits, as well as some long term, and even life after we are gone. Yep, I am going there because it is something parents of children with disabilities have to think about, and do think about more often than you realize.
