Michael and Varsity Football
Parenting is the hardest job in the world. Now with that being said, we always want what's best for them and want them to strive for more. My Michael was bullied very bad at the age of 8 years old. It changed him but made him stronger. He stopped playing football which he was so passionate about. At the time it really broke my heart but as a parent all I could do was support him and get him the help he needed. He had nightmares, tremors, scared to sleep alone and anxiety. Through the years he received the help he needed. He has now decided to try out for Massapequa Varsity. He is so out of his comfort zone and I am so dam proud of him. He has been pushing himself every day. He is making his own decisions. Why is this so important? Because Aspergers/Autism is not winning!!! I prayed every morning and afternoon for God to keep him safe, for his ego not to be crushed and for him not to give up on himself. Making the team is in God's hands. Well he is succeeding and determined for himself. That is the only thing that matters. He thanked me for the encouragement and support. That's all we can do. Let go and let God.
