The birth of a blog. Reminds me of the birth of my daughter in the early 90’s. Bizzare how that works, no?
About an hour after she was born she was rushed to the neonatal intensive care unit. A bit later I called my Rov.
The Lord only puts on your plate what you can handle.
Thank you so much, Lord.
What is a ‘Rov’?
A Rabbi, literally a teacher.
You’ve got me hooked with the first entry.
First I would like to commend you on being a “stand up Dad”. There are so many men these days that “make ‘um but won’t take care of “um…. and you, having more challenges than most, makes you even more of a hero in my book. I hope that you will not be upset or turned off by what I am going to say but this is my opinion and mine alone. Take what you will and leave the rest but please know that it is said with genuine love. I feel that when God gives us children that are “less than perfect” in society’s eyes, it is for a reason.. I believe that we are spirits before we become human and the the spirits of you children chose to come to earth to live as they do either to learn something that they could not learn in any other circumstance or to teach those around them lessons that they desperately need to learn. I also believe that what a “special” person is denied in human existence is counteracted by their high spiritual connection with God. So no matter what suffering or struggling they may appear to have in human form, I believe that they can see and communicate with God beyond what a “normal” person can and all they know is love, God’s love and some human love but I truly believe that they know something that we don’t and we, have to wait until we die to find it out and these “special spirits” can help us along a path that perhaps we never would have found if not for their life on earth.. God bless you and your children. Finding joy in a not so joyous world is something to relish. Thanks for listening.
I’ve got an autistic son and just had twins and they have same issues. Nice. Thanks for that…again. People don’t understand unless they have the same cards we do!
I don’t read blogs, but you have a great way with words, so this will be my first. Thanks for the breath of fresh air.
I have a severe and profound 33 year old daughter who has Retts Syndrome…We share many issues…
