New Mom Group - Sunday March 18, 2012

 

I am no longer able to find myself attending the “New Mom and Baby Group” at the hospital anymore. I’ve found that I can’t even bear hearing another mother telling everyone how advanced their baby is or how their child is crawling, sitting and pulling up on furniture. It’s not so much that I’m not happy for them that their child is developing normally, it’s just not my life and it’s not what I’m experiencing as a mother; in fact, it’s far from it. I realize that my child is not normal, that she is unable to develop normally, and I must direct all my energy and love into supporting and helping her to live and to live her life happily, even if it’s a very different life than most. I may not have the “normal” experience as a first time mother, but I’m doing my best with what I’ve been dealt.

 

 I look at Fiona and every day I celebrate all that she is to me. I rejoice when she smiles at me, and I’m filled with joy when she laughs. I learned to stop worrying about the standardized milestones, and instead, I create my own! Instead of looking for what is not happening within Fiona-I strive to notice all that is!
