#15972/0635  SOFTENING: Loving a Child with Special Needs
*WINNER! Documentary NYC festival, Grand Jury Prize Winner "An experience unlike any other...One of the truest portraits of family I have ever seen." Toronto Film Scene "I’m not really one of those parents of a kid with special needs who thinks it’s a gift from God or a blessing in disguise," says filmmaker Kelly O’Brien. O’Brien speaks honestly about her struggle to cope for the first five years following the birth of Teddy, born with extensive brain damage resulting from an in-utero viral infection. The rewards as well as the challenges of caring for him are evident in this video. In leaving out the grittier details of Teddy’s daily regimen to focus on the moments of intimacy and play, the film also documents O’Brien’s gradual process of opening up emotionally - her softening - about her son’s difficult diagnosis. *Closed Captioned
