Hi K., You sound like an amazing wonderful mom. I don't have any children with global delays, but my son was born with a severe hearing impairment and he has some other minor delays as well so I can relate a little bit to all the speech therapy appts and physical therapy appts. It's a lot! You always want your children to be perfect and it's really difficult when they have problems that you weren't expecting. It's really opened up my heart to appreciate other challenged children and I've realized that these children are usually happy! We see that they are missing out on things and we feel guilty, but there's no need! My son and your daughter have a special uniqueness - they have a different design and a different purpose than we do. I know my son doesn't have nearly the difficulties that your daughter has, but it has helped me to start looking at him for who he really is and not for who I wish he was. Idon't ever want him to feel bad about who he is,so I've decided that I'm not going to feel bad about it either (that doesn't mean that you don't have hopes for them todo better and definately keep working on it!)Sometimes I think we are the ones who are missing out on life because sometimes these special children see life in a simpler and more profound way without the business or the stress that being "normal" can bring. don't let your daughters delays stop you from treating her like a "normal" child as best as you can - take her outside to play even if she can't run with the other kids, just like I'm still going to take my son to the symphony one day even if he can't hear it very well. It sounds like your doing a great job, and I will pray for your family! I hope this helps encourage you in these difficult times. D.
