People Like Us are Fearless Families

I have partnered up with attorney Pamela Parker!

We first partnered up many years ago when we got married and started raising our four kids together. Two of those kids have serious special needs – one with autism and one with cerebral palsy.  Over the years we’ve learned how to  beat out our own path in life, finding laughter and love in everything that happens, even the things that we wish wouldn’t  have happened.

Our life includes special needs, it’s not defined by special needs.

Our personal partnership has been great, and for some reason continually surprises people.  When people hear Pam is married to a honky tonk star, she gets a doubletake, then I see the wheels in their head struggling to realign, then “Wow.  Really? That must be fun.”   I usually get “Dude! You married a lawyer???? How’d you do that?”

We’ve also spent a lot of our separate professional lives working for special needs families.  I’ve played many fundraising events for a variety of special needs causes, and Pam’s legal practice serves mostly special needs families.

Finally, we’ve partnered up in the professional realm.  Our project, the Fearless Family Tour,Fearless_Family_Tour brings Pam’s information about special needs planning to families along with my music concert, peppered with stories that all fearless families out there will identify with.  We have some other projects in the works that will raise money to help more families get their special kids set up for the future.

We’ve created a facebook community  to let families connect with each other.

We have found the people like us, and they are fearless families.  We all have dreams and together we can help each other reach them. Let’s hike that trail together.  Come to one of our events, join the facebook community, or have your group sponsor us to come to your town.

Well, baby, I know, it can be a real drag

And it brings me down to see you looking so sad

And I know sometimes it gets to you

That we don’t live like the rest of the world does

But the world wasn’t built for people like us

 

Well people like us don’t ever seem to count

We don’t make the wheels go around

We got dreams we just won’t leave to die in the dust

And the world wasn’t built for people like us

 

Well sometimes it seems like this never goes anywhere

And I hope you don’t think that we’re not ever gonna get there

I know sometimes it gets to you that we don’t live like the rest of the world does

But the world wasn’t built for people like us

 

Well people like us don’t ever seem to count

We don’t make the wheels go around

We got dreams we just won’t leave to die in the dust

And the world wasn’t built for people like us

 

The world wasn’t built for people like us

The world wasn’t built for people like us

World wasn’t built for people like us

World wasn’t built for people like us

World wasn’t built for people like us

World wasn’t built for people like us

World wasn’t built for people like us

World wasn’t built for people like us
