A Mother’s Prayer
Over the past few weeks, its become difficult for me to focus on Bible study. So today, I’m doing something a little different. Today, I’m taking a moment to reflect on my circumstances and giving it to God.
What’s Going On?
Last spring my husband and I finally got the documentation and official diagnosis we’d been praying and waiting years for… our oldest baby, we knew was extra special. Our handsome little angel has Autism.
Ever since his official diagnosis, it’s been an uphill battle to get him the services he needs inside and outside of school.
I can’t begin to tell you how heartbreaking it was to learn that our boy stops breathing at night. Nor can I put into words the way it breaks our hearts watching him struggle to express himself and communicate with others. What perhaps is the most difficult to understand and deal with is other’s ignorance.
This year has been particularly hard for our baby boy. He’s been bullied. He’s has shown more hesitation in regards of being his wonderful self. He needs now more than ever to see that he’s a wonderful boy… and I need the strength and the courage to show him in a world that discriminates, segregates, and ignores that he’s loved.
So today, I’m praying what I’ve come to realize countless mother’s pray every day.
