1. This post means so much to me. Our two younger girls have receptive and expressive language disorder. I sometimes struggle to connect with them because conversation can be difficult. I often feel like I’m not a good mother because I can’t seem to connect with them . Caring for them seems to crowd out finding ways to connect with them. Thank you for helping me to see that it’s a different kind of love…but it’s still a mother’s love. I can’t thank you enough for sharing this post.

    • Tricia, I can imagine that children with language hindrances can add a whole new later to feeling disconnected from them. You sound like an amazing mother!

  2. Beautifully said, friend. You’re an amazing mom and our little guys do require a different kind of love. One that is no less real or deep than others. In many ways, our love extends even deeper because we appreciate every achievement, milestone, and met need more than we might have if our children did not have special needs and challenges.
