Feeling utterly hopeless and heartbroken

      8 Comments on Feeling utterly hopeless and heartbroken

:(As a special needs parent to a handsome little boy with autism I can honestly say I feel your pain. Our lives are roller coasters of highs and lows. My little dude regresses and he progresses then loses some of what he’s learned…it’s always up and down. Somethings always changing…but the one constant thing is the unconditional love we have for our little kiddos…and the fact that we will never give up on them. I’ll pray for you and all of us.
