You Are Not Alone

You are never alone. Though your story, your situation, your circumstance may be unique and unlike those of family and friends around you, you are not alone. We all experience fear, confusion, anger, regret, lonliness, the list goes on… but in our first moments of our “stories” this is exactly what our initial feeling is… I FEEL ALONE.
After being a part of several events and gatherings in the past few weeks of parents who have gone through challenges with their children, their feelings of inadequacy, with their lives that have not turned out the way they have expected... now more than ever I realized that at the beginning I assumed something very false when Charlie was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. That I was alone.
