Faced with the frequent question of "will he ever....?" by Max's bus driver (who we love and she simply was being curious) this morning...it's been a long time in the making but I have finally gotten to the point of not completely breaking down when the answer is "I just don't know."
The issue was Max not communicating about feeling sick/being in pain....that lack of communication about something so basic is truly heartbreaking. I have been miserably sick all week and it makes me so sad that when Max feels this way, he doesn't communicate what he feels/needs/wants. How can I help him feel better when I don't know what he needs? We snuggled and prayed together this morning about helping me better understand him...and we had such a connection. Perhaps that is all we can do...be patient and in the moment with one another.
