This article was written months ago after I went through a very difficult time with my autistic daughter who was 19 years old at the time. It was hard to write, but I felt like it was important to share it because I know there are many other moms of special needs children and adults out there who, like me, sometimes get tired and discouraged. I hope this gives you a bit of hope and the courage to keep going!
Isn’t it amazing how many lessons we learn from our children? When I began homeschooling, I thought my children were supposed to learn from me. I had no idea that the situation would quite often work in reverse! Over the last few weeks, I’ve learned a really hard lesson. I hope this blesses those of you who struggle with similar situations—especially those who have special needs children.
