I have travelled the country with my little man, from healers in Wales to a homeopath in Cornwall and all the counties in between. I love our Thelma and Louise outings and Zak’s knowledge of every vehicle on the road could win me a place on mastermind!!
My next trip is taking me to America to take part in the Son Rise Programme and this time I am on my own! Flying to New York and then getting a train to New England to spend 6 days learning a method that is going to help all of us understand Zak better and connect with him more.
Someone said to me “for gods sake Trish, why go all that way? Zak is high functioning, doing well, why don’t you just accept what is?”
We all want our children to be the best they can be, however when you have a child with special needs this is more of a need than a want.
I love Zak just they way he is but if I somehow have left a stone unturned that could possibly enrich his life, in my eyes I have failed.
And finally, you never, ever give up on your child, however small or big they are!
So to my best boy…… Have a great week with Daddy, enjoy not being doused in Rosemary oil and having reflexology EVERY night, eat gluten & remember……I love you to the moon and back xxx
