Am I doing enough for Matthew? Should we put him in more therapy? What about the speech focused school? How in the world am I thinking of going to work full time? How can I give everything to the kids and still be me? Is there any new research on speech delay? Should I be more structured in my play with Matthew? Am I devoting too much time to Matthew in lieu of Jackson and Alyssa? What if we devoted all of our resources to getting Matthew to speak and he still doesn't? Will I always wonder 'what if' if we don't?
I wish I knew the answers to these questions and more. I wish I could be confident that the decisions we are making now would net the best results, but I guess that is a wish of every parent. I saw this posted on Facebook and thought it summed up some of my angst. I guess I'm not the only one.
