Words to describe Special Needs parents

I’m not a limelight sort of gal. I usually shy away from building myself up unnecessarily, that’s just me. The other day someone asked me for 5 words to describe my job as Austin’s mom. Before I knew it a list was developing, a list that could be used to describe many parents, but especially those who share the title with the words Special Needs. {For the record, I worked hard at keeping this list positive, there are a few words that I could have used to describe myself that would have been accurate, but probably not very flattering.}
