Huffington Post: What Facebook Means to Special Needs Families, by Rachel Engel

The Engels

 In the Huffington Post article shared below, the mother of a daughter with a neurological disorder shares her appreciation of the community support she receives on Facebook. She complains about Instagram, pictures of dinner, and political and religious arguments.

“Facebook is annoying. It’s overused and overexposed. But, for parents of children who have rare diseases or disorders, special equipment, body differences, or something that makes them extra unique… it’s the most precious invention, ever.”

There is an Orthodox Christian Facebook community that serves this very purpose. It’s in English, but there are translation websites, including  Google Translation. Here’s their Facebook website: Koinonia for Exceptional Orthodox Families – Community
