Family Mommy Thoughts Parenting

Graduation and Thank You Post

It’s been a very busy first quarter of the year for the whole family because lots of things happened and many of our wishes and plans materialized and came true…

Last March, my eldest son who is just 11 years old, graduated from Grade School with honors. It’s another milestone for him. Some of you may not know that he is a special kid. He may not be like a normal child physically because of the major damages on his spine, though he has a shunt on his brain, he is a very intelligent and smart kid.

He also has a mild learning disability and ADHD due to Hydrocephalus, but this did not prevent him from going to school and getting awards every single year. We are so proud of him and of the things he has accomplished. Who would have thought that the fragile little baby I was holding in my arms over a decade ago, will turn out to be a young achiever.

We went thru a lot of trials and hardships during his growing up years. My son in his very young age, already went thru 5 major operations.

We are just glad and so thankful to God that he never failed to shower us with blessings and touch us with his hand. He is not completely healed yet, but I know that in His time, all will be well for my son.

“Thank you Lord, for all the blessings You are giving us every day. May we be able to return the love You are bestowing us.”

But her social skills and communication skills are somewhat delayed. We just got the diagnosis last month. May mga therapies na kaming ginagawa. I pray for strength all the time, and compassion and love for my Maia. Sabi nila, special children are only given to special parents. At kakayanin natin ‘to.
