“Even though we consider ourselves young(ish), and Kennedy is just 10, we know that life is fragile. That’s why we met with our attorney to talk about the things we can do now to make sure Kennedy has what she needs when we are no longer here to take care of her.

It is never too early to start thinking about how you will make sure your child with special needs is taken care of when you’re gone. It’s not a fun thing to think about, but the rules are definitely different for these special kiddos, so we went to the pros for help. I sleep a little better at night knowing that we are setting Kennedy up for success after we’re gone.

When it comes to our plans for taking care of our children after we’re gone, how we plan for our children with special needs is different than how we plan for our other children. It’s taken some time and some specialized knowledge from our attorney, but we feel good knowing we’ve taken the right steps now to make sure Kennedy is happy and secure in the future.”
