One thing that really scares me-is thinking about the future. I guess I need to have more faith, but if you think about's such an unknown territory. As a mom, we worry about our kids. That just comes along with Motherhood. So throw a kid with a disability into the mix and it quadruples the worry. I mostly worry how they are going to make it in society. Will society embrace them or disgrace them? Will they be able to provide for themselves? Will they ever get married? Will I ever be called Grandma? Will they have to live in a group home when I'm dead and buried? Who will visit them? Who will take care of me when I am old? Who will love them as much as I do?

We have received so many blessings, so I know the Lord hasn't forgotten us. He answers our prayers through the people in our lives. They just don't know it. So, to all of you out there, thank you for all of your love and support. It really takes a village.


  1. Something positive will have to happen for them in the future. There are going to be SOOO MANY special ones aging at the same time. Things will change for the better. It just has to.

  2. I completely empathize. You are amazing.

  3. LOL, I just read your "about me"--LOLOLOL we're not contagious!!!

  4. Stephanie....I was just worrying about the same thing...sending Lauren out into the world in a few months....WOW!!!!I have to remember that the Lord chose these souls to come during the last days. There has to be a reason and he will provide for them.

  5. I worry about the same things with my sons (they each have autism). I don't have any great advice unfortunately, just wanted to say you're not alone.

  6. The future is my biggest fear for my son. I feel, like you, that I need to have more faith, but also like you, I've recognized blessings from all around, blessings I wouldn't have seen before the diagnosis of my baby. Kudos to you for reminding us of the good that there is! The Lord WILL provide.
