That's all we can do as a parent when our child is suffering. We all hope for and pray for that perfect child, and when they get old enough to realize that they have issues, it hurts. We can sugar coat it, we tell ourselves that he's perfect in God's eyes, and he is. However it still hurts to see his pain on a daily basis. He knows he's difference, he knows he doesn't fit in, he knows that he's a target on a daily basis, and WE have to admit that he's not perfect, he sticks out like a sore thumb.
I've worked so hard over the years to make his school experience positive, and now it's fallen apart. He's noticeably miserable, he's noticeably missing out. He's failing everything, a parents worst nightmare when you have a child that is smart. How do we reach him? That's the next challenge.
