    Jen, Thank you for sharing yours and your beautiful daughter Jacquelyn’s story. I can not imagine the everyday struggles the two of you have been through. This is such an honest eye opening story. I am looking forward to the rest. I want to hear how far you and Jacquelyn have come! Best wishes. Mandy

    Your daughter and mine sound like twins separated at birth in so many ways. I can’t wait to read more of your story and hear how things are going now for you and her both.

    Oh Jennifer! Thank you so much for sharing your girlie’s story. These children of ours are truly amazing. Amazing and shocking and difficult and lovely and sad and happy and the whole spectrum of emotions. But they are OURS and we are theirs….to love and figure out and hopefully laugh too.
    Thank you for reading my blog and leaving a comment. Feedback and comments from others really help on those days when everything is a struggle or when we as parents question ourselves, our abilities…even our sanity!:)
    I’m looking forward to reading more and learning more about Jacquelyn.
    Enjoy your weekend!

    This is so great to see. Sensory issues are rarely recognized and other mothers always think we are coddling or letting our kids ‘get away with’ being ‘difficult’ My daughter went through very similar things and at 7 months when I went to the pediatrician asking if my child could be bi-polar we knew something was different. We are also (at age 4) finally returning to ‘typical’ after a year of OT and psychology sessions. My daughter is amazing, including her sensory issues, and i loved reading this. Thank you :)
