When you are expecting a brand new baby you only think of the good. You never imagine your child eventually facing a challenge, ecspescially a challange that you can't fix.
Never in a million years did I think I would be a mother to a child with special needs. We just recently learned that our son has Sensory Processing Disorder. Yes, I am still coming to terms with it and learning how to embrace it. I have cried countless times and asked why does it have to be our son. I than stop myself to say I am so happy to have given birth to such a sweet and healthy boy. He may be as unpredictable as a firecracker, but I wouldn't change anything about him.
I am still learning how to be nice to people when they glare at him when we are in public and he has a complete meltdown. I will go to the ends of the earth and fight for him when ever given the chance. My best friend, who doesn't have children, asked me what it was like to be a mom. I told her you feel like a lion because anything that poses a threat to your child you are ready to attack them at their jugular.
This blog is my outlet for everything that is going on in my life. At times the only way I can truly sort out my emotions is through writing.
