It’s never just one thing…

Standard

It’s one thing to know your child is unique.  It’s another to watch him cry because he has no friends.

 

It’s one thing to believe your child will be okay eventually.  It’s another to believe he is okay right now.

 

It’s one thing to let your child learn at his own pace.  It’s another to see him fall 1, 2, 3 years behind his peers.

 

It’s one thing to realize that regular public school isn’t working for your child.  It’s another to find a specialized school that will take him.

 

It’s one thing to love your child.  It’s another to like him.

 

It’s one thing to have your child diagnosed.  It’s another to leave the doctor’s office and go home and live with him.

 

It’s one thing to know your child has his own special path.  It’s another to have to make decisions that affect the course of that path.

 

It’s one thing to have a baby.  It’s another to raise a child.

 

It’s one thing to know your child has the heart of a poet.  It’s another to hold him during a night terror.

 

It’s one thing to be told you’re a great mother.  It’s another to believe it.
