You've learned from your special needs child?


Most definitely patience for me! Progress is slow going so we take it day by day and enjoy the moment.

Thank you, tasha_mae, for my siggy!

I feel like I have learned a million things from and for Danny, but the big one is definitely patience. I'll full admit, I'm a toddler mom ... not a big fan of babies. It has been a huge adjustment for me to sit back and accept Danny's timeline for development and not keep waiting for him to crawl, to walk, to talk. It's still a struggle some days, but most of the time I've managed to let go and just love what he IS and not what he might be.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for the siggy!

most of your schedule going to doctors.
Try not to take advice from someone who doesn't have a special needs child,at heart.

I guess what I'm saying is it's nice to get advice,but unless that person has experience with a special needs child,what works with their child may not work with mine.

~~~Thanks Patty(pattyandthemoos)for this great siggy~~~

Patience for sure. I've had to realize that she acts out when she is stressed or worried, and be patient while trying to find a new way for her to express those feelings.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

They have taught me the value of human relationships. To never take love ones for granted and that love may not be able to conquer all but sometimes in life its the only thing you can count on

Resilience and a positive attitude, no doubt. It doesn't matter what my son is faced with, he just keeps going with a smile. He lights up every room he enters, and never fails to leave a strong impression on all those he meets. It's something to see, even when he's his weakest - he touches those around him, including me.

I have learned that the world is perfect through Carter's eyes, and hopefully he will never know anything different from that.

To appreciate every single day and be so THANKFUL that while we've got our challenges, they'll never top the ones I see other mama's deal with with such grace I can only stand back and admire them.

to trust my own instincts.

I've also learned how tough my little guy can be. He gets labs drawn every week and laughs at the nurses while they draw the blood.

To step outside my comfort zone and talk to people. LCH is often ignored and undiagnosed for months (as in Joey's case) because parents and Doctors don't know about it

To ask for help when I need it.

Ive learned to be thankful for what i have becasue even though I think have a child with so many needs it really isnt that bad. and I have learned to trust my insticts, and to be presistant when it comes to my sons health!

Thank you Sara(misfitinmn) for my siggy!!
