Because of My Son: Happy Birthday Little Man

Because of my son, I know what it is to have an unexpected, unplanned, scary C-section. To save my baby’s life.

Because of my son, I know what it is to lie on an operating room table, hearing a squeak that I initially thought was a mouse and realizing it was actually my baby trying to cry. And that instant, I know what it is to have a comforting feeling wash over me as I am filled with an unshakable knowing that this newly delivered, distressed preemie will be okay.

Because of my son, I know what it is to discover that your perfect, but very active little boy is not “normal.” At least, according to the medical establishment, he is not normal.

Because of my son, I know what it feels like to have a child that is labeled this and that and then some more things by the medical establishment. I know what it is to have an alphabet child (SPD, LD, ADHD, etc.).

Because of my son, I know what it is to deal with more discontent and meltdowns that I ever thought I’d have to deal with, or that I ever thought I’d be able to deal with.

Because of my son, I know that you can raise a respectful, responsible and very capable child without spanking, threatening, punishing, blaming or shaming them.

Because of my son, I know the amazing restorative powers in a good cry and a nap.

Because of my son, I learned to listen to that little voice in the back of my mind.

Because of my son, I followed the path less traveled.

Because of my son, in effort to help him, I have opened doors that have helped me (and him) more than I would have ever dreamed.

Because of my son, I have learned that the medical establishment is a great resource, but does not know all. There is much they have to learn about so many things. And Energy Medicine is the future.

Because of my son, I had a spiritual awakening that has forever changed my life.

Because of my son, I have experienced miracles and know that anyone can create them.

Because of my son, I now see what an amazing and talented person he is, and what an advanced soul he is.

Because of my son, I know that you can expect to have your life go a certain way, and it most definitely will NOT follow your dreams. I know that it will be so much better.

Because of my son, I see that my real journey in life has just begun.

Happy Eleventh Birthday Little Man. Thank you for coming into my life.

    I just love this post! Happy birthday to your son! It is so true they are here to teach us not the other way around.

  6. Thank you CB! And what an education I’ve received so far.

    All so true, and so wonderful that you can recognize these things in him and yourself. As I mentioned to you a couple of months ago at BBW, we have four children, including a 14-year-old son with Aspergers. I can honestly say he has taught us as much about ourselves as we have tried to teach him about himself. Last week, he gave a speech in our youngest daughter’s seventh-grade class about being Autistic. He made a Power-Point presentation and it just blew me away. There is magic there in our children, M2M. And it’s such a beautiful thing when that magic is embraced. Like any good magic, it’s not as much about being understood as appreciated. Without question, your son flourishes because he knows his magic is appreciated by you.

    • Thanks Ned. And what most people don’t appreciate about these kids, is that they are truly wired for the future. I sat with an intuitive friend over the weekend, who was telling me about a boy who she has experienced (who has Aspergers), who is practically a living spiritual master. Just freeking amazing!

  8. Beautiful. Simply a beautiful tribute to your beautiful boy.
