He has been so supportive, he never doubts me, he shows up, he loves me and my daughter so much, he is a team player, he’s hands on, he never says no, he goes to all the early intervention meetings. She wants to know what is going on, so he reads the books, plays the games, takes over when I’m tired, does the laundry, cleans the house, goes food shopping, has a full-time job, pays the bills, handles all the tantrums (mine and hers LOL), always stays positive, refuses to accept no for an answer when it comes to the limitations of this diagnosis. He loves me and our daughter so purely and unconditionally since we found out about my status and our daughter’s, he’s never doubted our abilities to thrive in this world. He is beyond Xtraordinary to me.
