I’m compelled to revisit my life as a parent. Often times we get engaged with WOE is me! Seems to difficult periodically to comprehend. The actuality, beyond doubt, our special needs children are really a blessing. Initially, blogging about Justin with autism and blindness capable of helping others at the same time, having an outlet to utter my feelings about my journey on paper. While in doing so, my world didn’t compare to so many other parents I’ve encountered or even witnessed. I’m deeply compassionate!

Here’s the deal.

I’m stricken with socialization goals, dietary and sensory restrictions, potty training, self-help skills, sleep deprived, and making a shopping trip merely impossible to do—–to name a few. As I’ve stated before I’m by far a medical professional in any capacity. However; I’m just giving helpful insight. Keeping in mind, other parents deal with concerns much more complicated, such as:

Wheelchair confinement

Down syndrome

Cerebral palsy

ADD/ADHD

Dyslexia

Learning Disabilities  

More than one child with a disability

Presently I can better manage my work load and not only did I benefit but Justin did as well (being consistent). I think as special needs parents we tend to be mistaken for having super powers, finding ourselves explaining why we can’t do for selfish self centered people. Don’t let the smile fool you. What they don’t see mentioned in my blog post in title “I’m just simply being a Mom” the tears we cry, sleepless nights, our own health problems and stress….. But here’s the catch, despite the disabilities or delays there are really great circumstances about raising our children. Not yet mastered, for me, I’m a much better person but most importantly I’ve learned how to solely lean and depend on GOD! There is something and someone we can all learn from so let’s make deposits and not withdrawals in our special needs world.
