As a parent to a special needs child, it can be very easy to find yourself in uncharted territory. There is never a set of directions telling you what to do.
So often, I find myself in a situation where there are no good choices.
Sometimes, I literally have to choose from several bad ideas and pick the one that’s less worse than the others.
It’s important to know that sometimes you are going to make mistakes. We weren’t picked for this job because we were perfect. We were picked for this job because despite everything that can and will go wrong, we are somehow the best fit.
Speaking for myself, I frequently question why I’m the best fit, especially when I can’t seem to do anything right.
Thankfully, we don’t have to be perfect. We don’t have to always make the right decisions or even know what the right decision is.
We simply have to keep moving forward, doing the very best we can. It won’t always be enough and it gets discouraging. The feelings of failure can be overwhelming and you don’t think you can go on.
However, despite all of the exhaustion, heartache, feelings of failure and setbacks, we pick ourselves up and we keep moving forward.
I truly feel that we are chosen for this role because no one else could love our kids the way we do. Sometimes, that means a great deal more than being perfect.
