Michelle, at In The Life of a Child, said~ "The topic for this month is wide open! Share about anything that has been on your heart or has mattered to your family over the past month. I can’t wait to hear about it…"
Recently, we have been trying to create a bunch of information about Shane, so that the school district and other professionals would hopefully understand where we-- Shane , and as a family were coming from.
It seems like we are always hiking up a hill, hoping to have an oasis of rest at the top-- but more often then not I find myself hiking that mountain of information, only to side back to where we were before!
I still find that I have to explain to the "public" and my family-- that Shane's behaviors are not planned or defiant.
He has made HUGE progress -- but as a mother-- I am nervous that this GREAT behavior might not stick--
I want to believe that things will be easier -- and I do think that-- but thinking about the future and not letting the past color my view now-- This is tougher than I had thought!
I wonder -- will the therapy that is to come, cure him?-- and us?
Will we as a family no longer need the special needs name?---
Although I dearly want to be like--"others"
I am happy with what we have become-- our own version of normal~!
