If you have a child with special needs, forget your privacy.
It doesn’t take you long to discover that in order to have sanity and any sliver of a “normal” life that you need outside help. Marston has been receiving in-home support services since the age of three. We have been blessed to have a beautiful, long list of individuals that have worked with Marston over the years.
These people have my whole heart. They will never, ever know the immense love and gratitude I have for them. Many of them have been people that were wise beyond their years at a young age. I marvel that when I was that young (20s) I was no where near as mature or altruistic. These people go on to have their own lives and families. And I miss them…
But they were there, showing up, providing for my son, but also for me. Sometimes these angels were the only other grown ups I would speak to in a day. I consider them my besties. Sure they got paid (not enough!) and sure they were working (hard!) but they are my forever friends. Some of the absolute greatest people I have ever known in my life and would never have known if it weren’t for my son.
Privacy is overrated anyway… I now have this amazing circle of abundance around my family. It is well worth the trade.
