What Are You Going to Do When She is Older?
“What are you going to do when she is older?”
I have been getting asked this question a lot lately, and to be honest with you, this is what I battle with every day.
All day, every day, these are the constant questions on my mind:
What? How? When? Where? Why?
I am constantly trying to come up with all the answers to all the things for my daughter Jessa.
Keeping her clothes on when we have visitors
Wearing Princess Dress-Up Costumes as Clothes
When I Die
I don’t even know what I’m doing with today or tomorrow, more or less in the future.
You see, having an autistic child-like Jessa means that you can try and plan as much as you want and try to be the most prepared, but just when you think you got it down, another curve ball is thrown your way.
This question doesn’t apply to parents with special needs; this is just everyday life.
So please, don’t ask me this question because I don’t have answers yet!
Yet, it is a small word, but it gives me perseverance, hope, and the fight to find the answers and get the help Jessa deserves.
