Dear Son,


You know the long list of 11 diagnoses we frequently talk to your doctors and therapists about, the ones that put you in a category of โ€œspecial needs?โ€ I want you to know that YฬฒOฬฒUฬฒ AฬฒRฬฒEฬฒ NฬฒOฬฒTฬฒ AฬฒLฬฒOฬฒNฬฒEฬฒ! Every single human in this world has their own set of โ€œspecial needs.โ€ You just get the fancy title because your needs are a little unique from the general population. Does that make you โ€œweird,โ€ or โ€œa poor unfortunate soul,โ€ or a โ€œburdenโ€? Absolutely not! Does it make me wish you didnโ€™t have those โ€œspecial needs?โ€ Absolutely not! I canโ€™t imagine how that would make you feel if I wished you to be any different than you are. Son, you are ๐—ฃ๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—™๐—˜๐—–๐—ง the way you are!


You know the long list of 11 diagnoses we frequently talk to your doctors and therapists about that puts you in a category of โ€œdisability?โ€ I want you to know that YฬฒOฬฒUฬฒ AฬฒRฬฒEฬฒ NฬฒOฬฒTฬฒ AฬฒLฬฒOฬฒNฬฒEฬฒ. Every single human in this world has their own set of โ€œdisabilities.โ€ You just get the fancy title because your needs are a little unique from the general population. Does that make you โ€œweird,โ€ or โ€œa poor unfortunate soul,โ€ or a โ€œburdenโ€? Absolutely not! Does it make me wish you didnโ€™t have those โ€œdisabilities?โ€ Absolutely not! I canโ€™t imagine how that would make you feel if I wished you to be any different than you are. Son, you are ๐—ฃ๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—™๐—˜๐—–๐—ง the way you are!


You will never hear me say โ€œitโ€™s not fair.โ€ I say, itโ€™s not fair to say โ€œitโ€™s not fair.โ€ Why?? Well, my sweet boy, because every single piece of your โ€œspecial needsโ€, your โ€œdisabilitiesโ€, your challenges, your inch by inch milestones, the hope you give the world, the joy you bring into our lives, your beautiful ๐—ฃ๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—ฃ๐—ข๐—ฆ๐—˜ God has gifted you, the beautiful ๐—ฃ๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—ฃ๐—ข๐—ฆ๐—˜ God has gifted ME by getting to be your Mommy, and everything in between, makes up who you are! You are ๐—ฃ๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—™๐—˜๐—–๐—ง exactly how God made you, and that is exactly who Mommy wants you to be!


Are there challenges? Of course there are. But there are challenges that Mommy has with your sissy and bubba too. ๐—˜๐—ฉ๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—ฌ๐—ข๐—ก๐—˜ has challenges. Itโ€™s ok to have a different set of challenges. Itโ€™s ok to have a different set of โ€œspecial needsโ€. Itโ€™s ok to have a different set of โ€œdisabilitiesโ€. If I were to mother you and treat you any differently than sissy or bubba, I know that would hurt you. I ๐—ก๐—˜๐—ฉ๐—˜๐—ฅ want to hold you back from your potential, and I know that potential is ๐—›๐—จ๐—š๐—˜! I never want to hold any of you back from your potential! This life is full of ups and downs, but through all of them, I promise to ๐—”๐—Ÿ๐—ช๐—”๐—ฌ๐—ฆ be there for you, your sissy, and your bubba! I promise to make sure each of you know that I wouldnโ€™t wish you to be any different than the amazing individual humans that God has made you to be, and that He has truly blessed me with!!


Love,


Mommyโ€ฆ.A woman who will never give up on you, and who ๐—”๐—Ÿ๐—ฆ๐—ข has her own set of โ€œspecial needsโ€ and โ€œdisabilitiesโ€ too, just like the rest of the world! โค๏ธ

Why me??!

A devastating diagnosis. A broken heart. Hopelessness. Iโ€™ve never been a fan of rollercoasters, but on January 11, 2021, I got on the biggest rollercoaster of my life, called the NICU. It was day 2
