    A mother, no, a mother to five children. A good mother. I heard your tears in this post; your guilt and frustration all aimed at what you should’ve, could’ve, done. But please stop and remember all the wonderful things you do as a great mom to great kids. Life will beat you up enough. Put down the hammer and let your heart and head know you are doing a good job

    Hi Carrie,
    I don’t know if Jack is into pirates but they now sell fabulous pirate patches that slide over glasses to strengthen the opposite eye. My nephew has one. I believe there is a website. Hope this helps. Thinking of you guys!

    Oh, Martha put what my heart was feeling for you, beautifully, Carrie. We adapt our head knowledge of “always understand the behavior has meaning” as our children’s needs adapt. You are an amazing mom! You will help him navigate this new adaptation beautifully. Give yourself the space to breathe while you do.

    I agree with Martha. It is hard enough to realize that a child like Joey needs glasses, compound that with Jack’s communication issues, and it becomes nearly impossible, not just for the parents, but for all medical and educational professionals that have been working with him. Give yourself some slack!
