We saw the movie peanut butter falcon

Sunday, September 29, 2019

It gives people with “normal” kids a glimpse into our world of parents with special needs. Every time she says something she says mother first to know she has my attention. She is so focused on what she wants and does not take no for an answer. The patience it takes on a hourly daily monthly yearly level that her body grows and gets older but her mind never will. Speech is difficult to understand yet I always know what she’s saying. She can watch the same thing over and over and gets upset when it doesn’t work right or cooperate so she can. Like the movie - what places are there? She too lives in a facility with older residents. After 30 concerts She did get to meet her hero Michael w Smith. She will never drive and has to depend on us for everything . As a parent realizing her needs and her limited abilities and for me to accept when she gets locked into something to be able to accept where she’s at and not get mad.

    I agree with you that others don't have an idea about what it is to raise kids with special needs. I agree how difficult it is and how hard we have to work for them and ourselves. I try to also share the happy moments. The special times that we have. They are what we have to remember. There is a reason for us to travel this road. Hang in there.

    A difficult time for the parents. Our friend has this situation and they have been making the best of it. Their son has learned to work and has a good job considering. His employer is very understanding with him

    Sometimes I just have no words to adequately respond. Please take care of yourself as I know the road is long and hard. Big hug.
