Reviving the Blog – “Amsterdam International”

It’s been a very long while since I’ve posted and I’m pretty sure it’s because I haven’t really wanted to go through the emotional difficulty involved in crafting posts about Case, because frankly I’m not dealing with it all that well.  That is, I wasn’t dealing all that well until I found a mommy blogger through a community group I’m a part of on Babycenter, called Delayed Darlings and, more specifically, found an essay/post she’d written entitled, “My flight landed at Amsterdam International”.

In the mom’s with special needs blogging community there’s a poem that’s often passed around to new mother’s of special needs kids and it’s called, “Welcome to Holland”.  Please read that poem first, if you haven’t already.  To do so, click here:

Dana’s essay, “My flight landed at Amsterdam International”, touches on exactly what I (well, we, Brian AND I) have been feeling regarding Case’s development and coming to terms with the fact that he’s a super special kid, with some super special needs.

Dana (the mommy blogger) has revived my want/will to share my journey with Case with all of you, and for that I’m very grateful.  I hope writing about him will not only help me (and Case, of course) but many other moms who may be traveling on similar journeys – perhaps journeys so similar that we can compare our makeshift maps and help one another along the way.

I guess I’m going to have to change my blog title, and “About” page too…oh well,  I’ll get to that later.

In the meantime, please click on the box above and read “My flight Landed at Amsterdam International”.

    A child with special needs is lucky when he has a special mom. And being a mom is just plain lucky.

    You will find strength that you didn’t know you had.
