I found this posted at the Hopeful Parents blog site this morning. Many times, a parent feels inadequate in caring for any child, especially one with special needs. This post by Adrienne Jones from the blog No Points for Style addresses those feelings.

When my son Carter (whose diagnoses are of the emotional/cognitive/behavioral/social sort) was two years old and had been screaming and wakeful every day for approximately 98.6% of that two years, I embarked on a most ridiculous quest: I wanted to know why I, fallible, broken, screwed-up-in-the-head, and lacking a seemingly essential has-her-shit-together quality, had become Carter’s mother.
