Earlier this week, Alex turned 6 years old. As I am sure most moms do, I have been thinking back to the baby he used to be. I remember the day he was born. He was perfectly healthy, weighing in at 8 lbs 6 oz. The one thing I was concerned about with him was his hearing. His dad had hearing issues when he was born. Luckily, he passed the hearing test with flying colors. Back then, the future was full of possibilities. Thoughts of delays and special needs never even crossed our minds
In these years, he has grown so much. I have watched him struggle and succeed. I have watched him struggle and fail, want to give up yet we encouraged him to keep trying or try again later. I have seen his learning seem to plateau and then almost overnight it would all click. I have seen my son grow in so many ways. And the future is sill full of possibilities for him.
