Is Rejection Painful?

New York Times:  Rejection May Hurt More Than Feelings.

Many special needs children and their families understand this all too well.  We are always on the outskirts of society.

I am reminded today that I had a Great Uncle Who Shall Remain Nameless.  He remains Nameless not because I protect his identity.  He remains Nameless because no one would introduce him even to relatives or mention him... I learned about him by chance.  He was special needs and unwelcome even in his own family.  I feel pain myself when I think of how he must have suffered alone.

We are all special... by Stacie Wiesenbaugh
