Championing kids with special needs or medical disabilities can be quite difficult on many levels.

First, there's the academic needs of the child. For instance, in some school systems, grades become emphasized over emotional development or character. Other schools lack the resources to champion the heart or strengths of the child.

In addition, there's the therapeutic needs of the child. From a financial perspective, this can put quite a strain on the family.

We close out this three-part series on families with children who have disabilities or special needs by talking with Kelly Bagwell. She and her husband Jeff are on the latter end of the journey, as their twin boys (who are on the autism spectrum) are about to graduate high school. She is also a high school teacher with special education students and a certified Christian counselor. So her perspective comes from all sides.

However, as you listen, especially if you're a parent, what you'll hear is raw emotion and honesty about how to champion your family and kids. It's an honest conversation about the challenges, necessary steps, and gifts of raising children with special needs.
