I am a weekend stepmom and professional working with adults with multiple handicaps-so I don't get a break, and I ask dh all the time what I was thinking stepping into this. But then we have a good day and it is all worth it.

Here's an example of a frustrating day for me:

Your small hand grasps mine

An eternity of one step behind
A slower pace, a gentler world

I reorganized the dreams, we'll make them real
Keeping the same expectations
Choosing battles, choosing battles
Never say never
Small milestones, huge impact

No pity parties, no tears
Hiding all my fears

You can do it
I'm so proud of you

Please be happy, please don't cry

If they would just stop staring

I'm mommy, please say mommy.

My light, you are my light
Am I getting through?

You are what makes me special
Your small hand grasps mine

I too have a day here and there where I feel as though why me, I'm not cut out for this! Then I look at DD, and how much progress she has made. That makes it all worth it :)

Oh Sara, you had me in tears. Thank you for sharing that.


One word of encouragement for you. When our son lost all of his speech at 18 mos. I cried for days and days. I remembering saying to dh, "I'll never hear him call me mommy again".

At 5 1/2 years old, after private speech for 3 years and learning sign language, he said the most beautiful word in the English language "mommy". I cried for days once again. Now he talks constantly.

We always need to remember there is HOPE for our kids. Never give up and even though there are days when I want to scream, I always remember Justin's first word to me after all those years. There is HOPE.
