Special Kids Annual Banquet

Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

The Varsity Gym of Middle Tennessee Christian School was filled with friends and supporters of Special Kids, gathered to hear about the work of this organization, and to meet Logan Blade, a young musician whose autism does not prevent him from shining. Dawn Rae May, co-host of Solomon and Dawn Mornings, Moody Radio, was the emcee for the evening and Demos catered the dinner.

Special Kids serves children who simply need a little extra help, children who are medically fragile, and all sorts of diagnoses in between. They are Murfreesboro based, Christ-focused, and ready to serve each family that comes through their doors. They are professionals who are trained and licensed, but first, they are Christ followers with a God-sized mission “to serve Jesus Christ by caring for His children.”
