When you have a child that is sick or has special needs (or, in our case, both), especially an illness as serious as cancer, it completely absorbs all of your attention. Unfortunately, that often means siblings get pushed by the wayside. That is kind of what happened to Bravery. Even in the midst of my grief now, I’m so used to him being self-reliant, and can’t give all that I used to, that I don’t often give him the attention he deserves, except that of emotional support.
I’ve started now to focus on more for him. He is officially “graduated” from therapy!!! and is doing very very well behaviorally & emotionally. He really is the light of our house! So now is the time we are beginning his development phase…
Bravery had his first violin lesson with “Team Violin” yesterday. I can’t even tell you how this makes my heart soar!!!! Every week he will get instruction from my cousin, the brilliantly talented Bridget, and then get to spend time with his Greek cousins. #Blessed #LoveMyFamily #BeBrave
next up: piano (seriously we wants to play piano at the same time)
