Dads, The Glue That Holds Us Together

I don’t post a lot about my husband, Steve.

Today I want to talk about him because he is my rock.

He is very much involved in everything we do for Henry.

All of the decisions we make are equal.

He went to all the doctor appointments and he’s around for most of Henry’s home therapy sessions.

The day Henry was diagnosed, Steve was at the appointment with me.

We knew the diagnosis was coming and we were able to console each other on the drive home.

When we got home he immediately called the autism organization that the doctor told us about. He knew I wasn’t able to talk about it without crying.

He got all the information we needed to get Henry on the waitlist. Because we all know they can be long!

We have found our groove after 9 years of being parents.

He makes all the phone calls and I take Henry to most of the appointments and do the therapy sessions with him.

Without him I’m not sure we would be where we are in this journey. I’m not sure I would have had the strength to jump in so fast.

We got Henry started in ABA therapy 2 months after his diagnosis and that is all because of Steve.

Every time I was upset or sad I had him to lean on and we talked everything out. On the days that I just wanted to be alone, he stepped up and took the lead.

I think dads don’t get enough credit sometimes, they are the glue that holds us together.

My husband is my glue, my rock, my everything.

Thank you Steve for being our families unsung hero.
