I was talking to a friend the other day. A friend who also has a teenager with some special needs.
It was so good to be able to relate on some things we are traveling through as mothers. The way our families have adjusted, heaved and shifted as the “special” needs get more pronounced and much more difficult to maneuver.
As Lucy grows we get deeper and deeper into unchartered territory.
Things others can’t understand. Things WE don’t understand either, for that matter. Things we are trying to pivot and adjust to while still nurturing and helping her grow.
So we were excited to have an opportunity to gather with other BBS families while we were in Utah.
To have Lucy interact with other kids with her same syndrome.
Love this “village” of mothers who are all grappling in their own ways with growing special needs.
These couples who are doing their best to be the parents their kids need.
Life is a rollercoaster sometimes.
And it’s pretty great to have others along for the ride right alongside you.
