to the one's who make the choice
On this special needs journey, teachers and therapists are our everyday. They help us more than anyone. And I don't think there is anything we could do that would come close to the amount of gratitude we feel towards them. They almost become like family. And sometimes it can be tough to let some of these people go.
One of Noah’s current therapists is leaving. We’ve only been working with her for 6ish weeks, but I still got a little emotional. Now we have another new person to meet, another person to get used too -- for both of us. And then I start to worry, but this morning I wondered why do I worry so much? It has always turned out okay, in fact, it usually turns out better.
I didn’t choose this motherhood, this motherhood chose me. But those who work with special needs children — teachers, therapists, paras, etc...they choose too. They choose to give it their all with our children, every single day. They are some of the most amazing people in this world.
We've been incredibly lucky to have these people in our lives. And I’d like to say thank you.
