The Long Chain

This blog is about the most important thing in my life: my family. In many ways it is a fairly ordinary family. Our second child, our son, was born profoundly disabled. Benjamin’s condition has no formal diagnosis.

This blog is called “the long chain,” a quote from Dickens’ Great Expectations: “That was a memorable day to me, for it made great changes in me.” The day we chose to keep him was a day that changed our lives. (Whatever we chose, it would be a day that changed our lives). One day in our own long chain.
