About Us

Many support groups within the special needs community are diagnosis-centric for the purpose of discussing children’s needs. At Steel Magnolia Moms, we focus on the Mom.

Having a child with special needs can be isolating. It’s scary. Motherhood can be an enormous source of joy – but for a special needs mom, that joy may also be shaped, defined, and limited by what their child can’t do. 

Motherhood may be the hardest, most important job in the world – but unlike other jobs, you can’t expect vacations or retirement. Motherhood is transformative and relentless, and having a child who has a disability can intensify it all. 

Steel Magnolia Moms reminds these moms to take time out of their hectic schedules to focus on themselves. We share our knowledge and resources, but more importantly, we encourage moms to take a break, have fun, and connect.
