It wasn't the post I meant to write today but it's the one I'm going to anyway, because late last night my best friend (sounds so high school doesn't it?) texted me to tell me her son's tests did not go as well as could be expected and they are now starting down the assessments, diagnosis, and finally disability and Special Needs road. My heart goes out to her, and I wish I could have just hugged her, but she is in a far away country, and there is nothing I can do to help. I know there is nothing I can do for her, because I still remember how there was nothing anyone could do for me when Yon first got diagnosed. When we started down that road nobody wants to ever walk on. She was on my mind all night. There are so many things I want to tell her about where she is headed, about this road of ours, but I can't. Because some things are not really for talking. Some things sound better in writing, and some things I can't say without crying. And besides I know she'll read this post.
