I have a 9 month old son with a developmental delay in gross motor and fine motor. We have been through so much in the last 9 months that you would think he was 12 years old. CT scans, MRIs, weight checks, "he may have cerebral palsy" he doesn't have cerebral palsy, sometimes we just don't know what's wrong...
He wasn't born premature, but only weighed 5 pounds. Today has been a low day for me. I get paticularlly sad when I see my friend's babies on facebook who are younger and sitting up and crawling or I an around another baby close to his age. I just want to see the light at the end of the tunnel. This has really challenged my faith. We did everything right. Why is this happening to our baby? Will he ever be able to have a normal life? Will he be bullied? Will he be in special education forever? I'm glad I found this group because no one knows what it feels like except those who have gone through this. Even my parent's who are very supportive don't completely understand what my heart feels like. I'm sure many of you have felt this way or do feel this way.
Will it ever feel better?
