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.
