I can’t believe that we made it through to day 44! Our whole family has been challenged to begin anew each and every day. No suicidal ideation, no aggressions. Completely and totally amazing. Damian still struggles with oppositional behaviors and meltdowns but they so low level compared to before.
We owe Damian’s success to the amazing psychologist, case managers, family support personnel, behavior management specialist, behavioral aides, behavioral therapist and his new behavior mentor. He is now receiving 2 hours of one on one assistance everyday 7 days a week between 4-6pm.
I will spare you the insane details of how I made that happen. Suffice it to say I had to be a complete b****, which is not my way. I didn’t like it and it was an extremely unpleasant 3 weeks. But it’s over for the now and we are have been truly enjoying our time with our son .
Thank you to all of you for helping us not give up. “When the road gets dark and you can no longer see. Let my love through a spark and have a little faith in me.” You have all been my spark and I have leaned into your faith so many times these past two years. Thank you!
