I know this feeling only too well!

I know how blessed you feel to have the child that you have (not sure if this is your only, or one of???), TeriJo. But I hope you never minimize your part in this relationship. You are so open and understanding and I know that when this is just how someone is, it doesn’t seem extraordinary or rare to accept and embrace people for who they are. But (and yes, it’s unfortunate), it IS extraordinary and rare for people to find unconditional acceptance in this world. So I hope you never forget, too, how blessed your child is to have you.
