Sometimes I feel like people try to justify my son’s delays to me. I get told often about people that do not have disabilities that didn’t walk right away, or didn’t talk until later, so I shouldn’t worry about my son. I know people say these things in attempts to help , but there is a definite line between helping and hurting. I don’t need to be convinced that my son is “fine” and I really don’t need people comparing my child to other people. The fact of the matter is I don’t need anyone to convince me my son is okay. I know he’s great. And you know what? If he doesn’t walk or talk I’ll still be unbelievably proud of him. We continue to work really hard with him and he is such a strong little boy. We continue to work with him and adjust to his needs. He is his own wonderful person and I don’t need anyone to tell me different.
