God Gave Me A Special Child

I am strong.

Because my son has taught me to keep fighting
And never give up,
Even when it seems all hope is lost.


I am courageous.

Because my son has taught me to trust my instincts, 
To fight for what I believe in,
And not be too intimidated to make my voice heard.


I am humble.

Because my son has taught me to ask for help when I can't do it alone,
To accept the things I can not change
And to put the past behind me.


I am patient.

Because my son has taught me that some things are worth waiting for.
Like that first giggle,
Or a smile.


I am thankful.

Because my son has taught me to make the most of every opportunity,
To appreciate every day,
As if it were our last.


I am blessed.

Because my son has taught me to see beauty in the world around me,
And that happiness, family and love
Are all that are truly important.


God didn't give me a child with special needs because of the gifts I had.

He gave me a child with special needs to teach me the skills I lacked.
