Watching the Impossible

Two years ago my 6 year old made a request.  She wanted to go to Sea World.  Unfortunately, I just didn’t see that happening.  The Post clan has been blessed with God’s provision of all that we need and some of our wants, but a trip to Sea World is a pricey endeavor for a…

I Didn’t Know

Two years ago I wrote my first blog post, because of my daughter Cadence.  She has shown us first hand the challenges of living with Autism (challenging for her, our other children and ourselves) but I started writing this blog because I wanted to offer hope to others.  I have been honest about some of…

20 Years Later

Today is a special day.  According to my middle daughter it is mine and her Dad’s “meet-a-versary”.  December 2, 1995, I was a college student in VA, who went to a wedding with my best friend in NC, where she introduced me to her cousin from OH.  18 months later her cousin and I were…

I Can See Clearly Now

Given the terrible weather SC has experienced in recent weeks, the name of this post might lead you to think it’s about our rain finally being gone.  But this post is actually about glasses for a seven-year old.  However, I do want to publicly say thank you to all the folks who pulled together for…

Sibling Rivalry

Sibling rivalry.  I know a thing or two about it.  I have brothers – one a twin.  I have 5 kids.  I’ve seen my share.  There are days when my kids are so sweet to each other.  And then there are days like we’ve had lately.  I had to take a kid to the eye…

Use What You Have: Post-it Note #140

I’m sitting in an auditorium right now because my daughter, Jayden, has a concert later today.  I traveled with her yesterday to a conference center where children and young adults from all over the state of SC are gathering this weekend to be part of a musical project.  The 5th and 6th graders are forming…

The Really Special People: Post-it Note #134

My oldest girl just turned 12.  She is a wonderful gift to us.  She has Autism and is non-verbal.  Because of this, we have needed a lot of help along the way in this journey of growing her up.  The list is really long of people we’ve met along the way that have played a…

What’s a Little Paper? Post-it Note #120

Paper. It’s an issue in our house. And by an issue, I mean that I sweep up piles of it almost every day. My girl Cadence, she’s an Autistic wonder. She’s truly amazing to me and a gift to our family. And she is serious about paper. She has a special spot that she sits…

A Guy Like Dad: Post-it Note #117

Last night I had a chance to do one of my favorite things.  I hung out with the “Sister Club” (my youngest 3 girls) on the back porch swing, in front of the fire pit, with homemade hot chocolate.  They always get chatty in those times and they talk about everything when given the safety…

That Would be Kinda Cool: Post-it Note #115

Kids with autism can do some things that are both funny and sad at the same time.  They tend to lack the inhibitions that help monitor behavior of other kids.  My daughter, Cadence, has some peculiar habits that most typical 12-year-old girl would find embarrassing.  But Cadence just doesn’t care.  The other day, my 10-year-old…
