I’m grateful for so many little miracles in my life. Every time I watch Max play soccer or hear him bounce the basketball, I am grateful. There was a time, not long ago, that I thought that Max would be very, very different from kids his age. Even today, I have a fear that something will change and his condition will worsen.
Because I know where we were and how far we have come, I do not take it for granted that Max is in school at his grade level. Max is playing soccer. Max got 100% on his spelling test on Friday. Reading is very challenging for him, but it is something we can work toward. We will continue to work on overcoming things that come as a byproduct of GAMT Deficiency while trying to live a normal life.
I believe that focusing on the blessings in life creates happiness, and I find gratitude in every normal moment Max experiences in his life.
