Today, I am just done.
Done asking. Done fighting. Done.
My arms are thrown into the air with a sense of surrender. Years of battling for what her IEP states, only to be discouraged and made to be “one of those parents”.
Well, today they win.
We will go on about our life. She will find unpaid work. She will live with me. She will rely on her family for social outings.
Today I am walking away with dignity knowing that I gave it my all.
This is today.
Tomorrow I just might get the gloves back on and ring the bell for round two.
