Sorry about that abrupt ending to my previous post. I had a window of time to take a shower before Derek was taking Desmond to the orthodontist. I don’t like to leave Aislyn downstairs by herself, even for just a few minutes.
I’ve always said that meds can be a game changer. For adults and kids. But I completely understand when parents don’t want to put their kids on medication. I’m grateful not to have that decision to make, right now. I know it could come up really any time. Given my own history, my family history.
I knew I was taking a chance, having kids at all. But I so desperately wanted them. I always wanted to be a mom. And I figured, no matter what their needs were, I would be able to take care of them. I would find a way.
As much as I whine and complain about schmaltz, I never forget how I’ve been blessed with these beautiful children. As hard as life was for me, growing up, someone was looking out for me the days they were born.
