This is going to be a long day. July is going to be a long month. It’s going to be a long 11 and 1/2 years. Tired of spending my life counting down, marking time, waiting. I didn’t ask for this. I wanted to start over.

It isn't easy being the parent of a child with special needs (youngest of three kids), let alone being in my mid - 40's. I have my ups and downs. I try to do all I can for her but I’ve put my life and goals on hold several times and I’ve realized I have to do things for myself to be the best I can be for her. I have times when I feel like she is the best thing in my life because she taught me unconditional love and patience. But I also go through bouts of feeling like a wedge has been placed between myself and my dreams and I feel hopeless. These are some of my thoughts, goals, achievements, rants and breakdowns as Sarah’s mom. View all posts by Laurie
