With everything that has been happening in our family lately we have had lots of different reactions from people. It got me thinking about how I react to people in different situations. It has brought me to a place to exam myself and my heart.
We have had sooooooooooo many supportive people. People sending us cards, emails, calling to check in, and every just stopping by. We were blessed by people bringing us meals, paying for meals in secret at restaurants, and just loving on our family. BUT with all that we have had some not so nice reactions either. The one that annoys me above everything else is the people that are not being patient with Addisyn. They seem to get offended when she doesn't want to hug them, go with them, or even go on a play date. We have had quite a few people approach her and ask her directly, "What is wrong with you?", or "You don't want to play at our house, why?" and the sad part these are adults not kids. To me it is obvious that she needs space and time..... that's all we are asking to please give her!
Thank you to soooooooo many of you who are understanding and being patient with Addisyn as she is finding herself. We still don't know why she didn't eat, drink, or talk for 5 days but we are proactive in finding out why. Addisyn will be starting some therapy in the next couple of weeks and we pray that we find answers. Thanks again for the understanding people in our lives!
