After walking this morning, I had Emmett’s SSI interview. It took about 45 minutes and was relatively easy. Now comes the part where they are collecting medical records, of which there are many.
I was told to expect a 3 to 6 month wait to find out whether or not he’s been approved.
When we went through this process with Gavin, it ended up only being a couple of months but he was approved without a problem. I’m not sure how I feel about our chances this time but from what all Emmett’s doctors and specialists have said, he should absolutely qualify.
I look at Emmett and Elliott and I always see how well they are doing. The problem with that is I’m not looking at it objectively.
I know all the problems they face and so I sorta automatically take that into account. I also don’t have a more typical frame of reference either.
The reality is that life for my kids is an uphill battle and they do as well as they do because of the enormous amount of accommodations that are made for them both at home and at school.
I hate really even saying that because I feel like it takes away from their hard work and unending efforts but at the same time, it’s important for me to keep everything in perspective.
Regardless, I’m so proud of my kids and all they have accomplished already. I can’t wait to see all they accomplish going forward.. ❤️👍😀
