Zenin went to his first speech therapy session yesterday. Up until now we were doing everything in our home with the help of an amazing team of professionals, preschool teachers & occupational therapists who specialize in speech. We are taking things as slow as Zenin needs them to be. In the past 6 months he has made awesome progress, so much so, that I lost count of how many words he has said or can say. Once in a great while he’ll bust out with a two-word phrase & my heart just swells with so much love & pride. Like just a few weeks ago, I was lying on the floor, he was standing over me, I said, “Zenin, look at you, you’re so tall!” He said, “I tall, I tall, I tall!” — instant tears. He is magical & I am standing in the power that I am his advocate, his voice, for now. I trust myself to know what is best for him because I have paid close attention to his cues since before birth. Any mother that is reading this right now knows that gut feeling, that knowing, that comes with mamahood. It’s fierce & I trust it.
Though I’m pretty certain I won’t be able to reply to all the comments & emails I received, I read them, every single one of them. I’m serious when I say that I have a total love hangover today & that’s not a bad thing at all. I am so blessed to be part of this amazing community. So blessed. Thank you for being you. Thank you for rockin’ this life with me. Thank you for your encouragement, recognition & wisdom. Thank you for making this a safe place for all of us to share our truths. Please know that you are appreciated & loved.
I’m in the middle of the river, lighter, floating… & I see you–
& I am celebrating our strength.
