No end to this rope

Here is an interesting article about what it's like to parent a child with special needs. I thought really agree with a lot of what she has to say. I like this quote a lot: "Why anyone thinks that we are uniquely suited for this task is beyond me-we are plain, ordinary parents. He is ours, we are his, and that will have to be enough for now. "

You're uniquely suited because you chose to keep on instead of abandoning. Way to go!

PS: The blog is back up, in case you wondered. Have a good weekend!

I'm glad that you appreciate the article. I thought it was a good one as well, and worth passing on to you.

Thanks for posting that article! It was so helpful, just to hear someone say the same things I feel. Even though we don't share the exact same situation, I could still relate, especially the part about "not being uniquely suited" to deal with it.
