Lovely. Absolutely lovely. I love the honesty in it, especially when well-meaning people say "encouraging" things. Thanks for the glimpse into the mindset of a parent of a child with a disability. Refreshing.
I've worked with the physically/mentally disabled for years, so this story really resonated with me. It's a good read with a great beginning. However, I feel you could have developed this story to a deeper level. Let the reader FEEL your pain and then the victory of acceptance ... hard fought and an inch at a time! Great job!
My entire career was in working with people who were severely disabled, and I was often told I was a special person. I hated that! I'm no more special than anyone else, it's just that I cared.You do have your hands full and a tough life. I will pray for encouragement for you.
I appreciate your honesty in this piece. We are so quick to offer comments which have not been thought through. Keep telling your story.
Great entry! Well done!
Wow! This is such an awesome story. I felt like I was right there while Sloan met Brett. You did an awesome job of showing we can't always understand the why's. Sometimes life just isn't fair, but during those times God carries us through. Fantastic message.
