I feel like my life has been consumed by doctors appointments, therapy sessions, constant worry & struggle to figure out the best ways to help my daughter.
It was really good for my husband & I to take a weekend together away & reconnect.
You don't see your relationship slowly change overtime because of small, every day things until one day you wake up & you're both different...distant...and you aren't sure how to fix it.
Having a child with special needs is even harder on a relationship. But we are making sure we stay connected & constantly stoke the fire that drew us together in the first place.
We refuse to be a statistic.
So even though we're back at it, making more doctors appointments, having more therapy sessions, still not getting the sleep we need, we make sure to take time for just US.
Because we started this dream together knowing it wasn't going to be easy. Knowing there were going to be a lot of hard days, months & years.
But we are stronger TOGETHER & we will make it through these trials because we have each other.
Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny. ~ C.S. Lewis
