It is a hard task, but I make it a point to not let apraxia define who my daughter is.
I allow her to define apraxia.
And defeat it.
But there are days that, like any parent with a child with or without special needs, I wonder what the future holds for my child.
How will she prevail academically?
How will she prevail socially?
Will she get married?
Will she have those really really good close friends that girls have?
What will she be like when she is 16? 20? 30?
I refuse to allow myself sleepless nights worrying because this is out of my hands.
It is in His hands.
But every now and then, a receive a sign from out of the blue.
Today, it came in the form of an email.
And today, it once again reminded me that everything works out in its own way.
Now, I'd like to share that email with you.
And if it makes you cry, makes you smile, or puts your mind at ease, then it has done its job:
:) You kinda remind me of my mom and I just wanted to share this with you and let you know your kid is going to be fine because she has you! In case your curious about how I ended up, I graduated from high school, served 5 years in the Marine Corps, met, fell in love and married an awesome guy and had two wonderful little girls with one on the way and am now currently working on getting my B.S. in Computer Science
My mom used to tell me that the only thing that could truly hold me back was myself!!!"
Can't top that! I am smiling from ear to ear just re-reading this!
