I appreciate all the postive comments and apologies. I am sorry because when it comes to my child I am a momma bear.
The truth is that while my son presents enormous challanges he also gives us many Blessings as well. He is kind. He loves children and small animals and protects them. He has stood up to other children who are fully functional when they tried to do the wrong thing. He has an innocence and ability to see things in a way we cannot. He has broaden my horizons and reminded me to be grateful for what we do have.
It also doesn’t hurt that he can argue Conservative viewpoints to his teachers and peers. He’s even converted a few. He points out what is Constitutional and what is not. A few liberal teachers have had their brains explode.
The point is we parents of special kids have a hard job like any parent. We are desparate for answers and celebrate little things that others may take for granted.
