  1. I was moved to tears when I read this. I have had those thoughts as well when my Ben was younger and felt like the worst mom in the history of mothers. God made me realize that he was made just as God intended him to be. Because of Ben, I have become way less caring of what others think. He’s not concerned, so why should I be. If people stare or think things about him that aren’t nice, then that’s their problem. I wish I would have been this way from the beginning, but I can’t change that. I am now and that’s all that matters! Thank you for your beautiful insight. God is so good!
