Being parents of neurodiverse children, on multiple occasions, we confront ourselves with situations that challenge our calm, our ability to resolve, and the sight of seeing hope for the best in what happens.
Being part of Manu for Inclusion for 3 years has given me the necessary tools to stop in a difficult situation and look for the best alternative. I find myself using the power of the pause to see clearly and look like any parent for the best for my child. However, I have come to understand that it is also valid to be sad, angry, and frustrated because we are more than parents, human beings, and where we make the difference is in the reaction to these emotions.
I want to share that we are a loving family sheltered by the M4IF.
I am also a woman, mother, and businesswoman, and I have made positive changes in my life day by day. I seek to be better for myself because if I am good in my heart, I can radiate what is in my heart to my family. Although life surprises me daily and challenges me, my faith and self-esteem are strengthened.
I invite you to open your heart, seek help when you feel that it is not possible alone, and maintain hope by living one day at a time.
