I used to be one of those people. I used to think ADHD was fake. I thought maybe the parents needed to take a look in the mirror and readjust how they actually discipline their child or that maybe the parents were looking for an excuse from a doctor for their lack of parenting. Or even that it was a made up disorder given for drug companies to bank off of disciplinary cases in school.
I was wrong.
My son has ADHD.
He’s not sick.He’s not a problem child.
He is different.
His mind works differently. He sees the world and everyone in his own way and copes with it all differently. He is just as bright, beautiful, and wonderfully made by God as every child. He has the same ability to do anything he wants, he will just have to find his own way of doing it and everyone else will just have to be okay with that!
This journey has just begun for our family. It is completely new territory for me. Things are changing. We have to readjust and routines are becoming priority. We’re creating a new “normal.” My son will have the best care we can get and and all we can do now is move forward. One thing that will never change is how much I love him! My husband, daughter, and son are my #1 concerns. We’re a team. And we’ve got our littlest teammate’s back ;)
