Just two moms letting off some steam

A TRIBUTE

6 Comments

Sometimes we get so self-absorbed on our quests to recover Annie and Brody, we forget to appreciate how hard they are fighting alongside us.

We forget that things are twice as hard for them, take them twice as long, and ten times the effort.

We forget that they manage to smile and enjoy being kids even if they feel sick or have pain.

We forget that the littlest things can cause them anxiety, but yet they manage to try new experiences every day.

We forget that they rarely complain about the weird food and all the supplements.

We forget that they don’t get upset about our constant coaching and correction of their speech, language, and social skills.

We forget that they are not upset by our constant hovering even though they are getting older and may want privacy and independence from us.

We forget that our kids don’t gripe about hardly ever getting “down time” or time to just “be.”

But… we will not forget to recognize our children for the fighters they are. They are “tough as nails” and we’d be nowhere without them.

Thank you Annie and Brody, our precious gifts from heaven, for teaching us real love and making us better people.

A Ventography is about: 1. Encouraging and empathizing with other parents on the autism spectrum. 2. Recycling and simplifying information on the latest autism news and health and diet tips. 3. Asking thought provoking questions designed to make us rethink what we've been told about autism. 4. Helping connect the dots that show, in some cases, autism is more than a brain disorder. 5. Challenging parents to rethink what they've been told, refuse the status quo, and escape the whirlwind of confusion.
