How do you accomplish this for your children? In the last 15 months I continue to learn how to be my children's advocate. Fiona was easy and with Whitney I have to have all of my medical information at the ready. My mind is in constant filing mode as I need to remember appointments and information. Last week I realized that I had not heard back from one of Whitney's doctors. The receptionist forgot about rescheduling her. "You forgot my child?!" Is what I thought in my head, as my inner mother lion roared. I did not say that but responded firmly insisting that they fit her in quickly. I can now only hope I handled it correctly. I am so thankful that I have the time and energy to deal with these things and I just need to remember that we are her number one advocate and yes, mistakes will happen and that is what I am here for. I just need to be gracious.
