Golden Nugget

This advice is not for most parents. It’s for parents who have a multi handicapped child. You may have a child who is never really going to be normal, who’s never going to live the full life you’ve expected them to have. You’re that child’s best advocate and you need to fight for everything that child needs. But eventually, that child needs one thing and that child needs for you to love them as they are. You may not have them forever, you may not even have them for a very long time, but you need to love them and accept them the way they are, because that may be the most important thing you can do for both yourself and your child.
