I think we all have lots of things that we swore a long time ago we would never do when we became parents. You know, back in that other galaxy far, far away. Back then we knew we would be perfect parents. The only problem was that once the kids arrived, reality set in.
Parenting is hard AF.
“Believe I can.”
The shirt says it all.
From the very beginning, I have always believed in my daughter. Believed in her ability to beat the odds. Believed in her strength and persistence. Believed in all the things that she has and will accomplish.
My daughter may have special needs, but she certainly “can”.
Sometimes you don’t get enough sleep the night before, and you just need all the coffee and a moment of peace that you won’t get.
Sometimes your best efforts to get your little ones out of bed and dressed and fed in a timely manner are derailed by messes and accidents and chaos.
Sometimes you promise yourself you will limit your toddler’s screen time, but hand him the iPad anyway for a moment of sanity.
Parents Of Children With Special Needs:
I know how difficult the IEP process can be for you.
I know the heartbreak of reading through pages and pages of reports that point out all the ways that your child is different.
This is a picture of my daughter (right) and her best friend. They have a great time together.
My daughter’s best friend has a beautiful smile and loves to laugh.
She has a kind and playful spirit, and is always up for a good playground.
She has the ability to sing every word to her favorite songs and adores dance class.
