Guess what time it is?

It’s time for Special Olympics! Brian will continue bowling and his sister will be his Unified partner. We took a couple of years off because of our Mental Health issues. My daughter and I have major depression and we decided we need to do this not only for him but for us also. His niece is carrying the torch now helping out with Special Olympics Bocce😇  🗽

 

 

 

 

 

 

Living His Best life

There was a time that I felt that Brian was unhappy and I felt guilty. I always blamed myself for him being born with brain damage. Now I know that this emotion is felt by every parent. It doesn’t matter what the child has been diagnosed with. Just think, what do “regular children,” parents think about? They worry just like us. Not only the future but also the “Now.” If my handsome son, my #foreverroommate was not DD I would worry about him getting into trouble, having sex+babies, following the crowd, etc. Ask your child “how they feel,” see what bothers them. From there you can try and mend it. I noticed I was the one worrying and he was 😁Living his best Life✌. I still struggle sometimes with guilt, but I have to constantly remind myself that life is not perfect and we have to live the best way we can.
