Proudly Supporting all Military Families with a Special Needs Dependent
It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to our Military Spouse of the Day, KaTrina Slaughter. She is a Navy spouse, stationed in San Diego, CA. KaTrina says her best experience in the military is how she has managed to find a support network regardless of where they’ve lived. “I have been so fortunate to have met wonderful people throughout our lives that have given us so much joy.” She has wonderful parents who offer great support when she needs help.
Her biggest obstacle she has faced with special needs has been finding doctors that have heard of her daughter, Sydney’s rare disease and then understanding the medical treatment of it. “When you have a child with a rare disease, it is so difficult to find doctors who have even heard of it, let alone know how to treat it.”
KaTrina de-stresses by working out. (Seriously, she is a maniac! She gets up at 4:45 EVERY morning to get her workout in before the kids wake up). But, she also has a sweet tooth and loves her Pepsi.
KaTrina’s best advice for new families in the world of special needs in the military is to “breathe and enjoy the quiet moments when you have them.”
The Military Special Needs Network honors and salutes KaTrina Slaughter, our Military Spouse of the Day. We thank you for being such a wonderful military spouse and an amazing advocate.
It's serious. It's sarcastic. It's sweet. It's sincere.
