Can’t understand….

I so struggle with the judgement of others.  I am so tired of when someone doesn’t understand our family they have to try to destroy it.  So why is it that if someone cares for children that don’t fit the norm they must be off or hiding something. 

Judgement…hmmm.  Something I have long ago learned not to ever judge someone before knowing the whole story.  Yet others feel perfectly free to sit in judgement of others.  The stress on families who are raising children affected by prenatal alcohol exposure is enormous.  These families need support, emotionally at the very least.  On the outside it may look different than what you may like or want to live but that does not mean that the other family is not okay.  Just because it is not what you may like doesn’t mean it is wrong.

  1. You aren’t alone! I know how hard it is to face people who think I spoil my son, or think I’ve made the wrong choices. At the same time, it’s hard to face people who think I must be an “angel” to take care of a child with special needs. I’m no angel! I know how I got angry, impatient, or upset with my son. I’m rooting for you!

    Judge not lest yea be judged. I am finally at a point in my life that I just don’t care. It tells me alot about people who feel the need to point fingers. As you know I love quotes so here you go…”Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain–and most fools do. But, it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.”~Dale Carnagie…Much love, Chris..
