I was standing there after the walk-a-thon for spreading awareness about children with special needs was over. The chief guest at the occasion was sharing her experiences about how being a parent to a child with a special need is challenging & difficult. I probably never think about it in my day to day life, but when someone else mentioned it, I realize that Yes, maybe it is challenging. I felt vulnerable for a moment.
Suddenly, I felt my bestie’s hand on my shoulder & a hug. Her eyes said, “I am proud of you & I am always here by your side.”
