Just another Minnesota Mom blog.

And then I wake up and get over myself.

Because when I read the update from Patrice about Tripp my heart just breaks.

My boys are healthy. They have always been healthy. They were born early and without complication and they have been strong healthy boys from day 1. Autism sucks, but they aren’t going anywhere. It’s a day to day struggle, but it’s not a struggle for survival. It would be good for me to remember that.

If you haven’t been reading about Tripp and Courtney (and you’ve got a little room in your heart for some prayers and maybe some tissues) I suggest you check them out. I’ve been following Tripp and Jonah for a few years now and I always marvel at the strength and grace these moms have in sharing their story. It’s truly amazing.

    Oh god. I just sat here and read about Tripp and Jonah and Leah and sobbed for like 45 minutes straight. I want there to be no problems on earth 🙁

    Yeah, I was not ready to read that at all. Especially because I was looking at the picture of Gabe and then read the story and realized I had been admiring a dead baby. And then came the tears. Definitely puts things in perspective.
