Tigon Mom

Back in October, someone I know wrote a great post about the difficulties of parenting a child with major medical issues.  I want to share it with you.  What about the Tigon Mom?

I can't tell you how much this writing spoke to me.  It's so hard when you don't feel like there's a place where you belong.  I read Emily Rapp's article a few months ago - before I read What about the Tigon Mom? - and as I read it I thought the exact same thing.  What does that make me?  Where do I fit in?  I'm going to expand on this soon.  It's been on my mind a lot in the past few months.

Thank you to all of the people out there that get me and/or support me.  Sometimes, it's a lonely place where I live.

Thanks for sharing that Christy. I think you are right. Where do we fit it? The moms like us? The kids like ours? I am eager to hear what you have to say. And I am grateful to have a friend like you. XOXO.

It's lonely here too Christy. Really lonely. Wish I lived a little closer to help you feel more "normal".
