Us Too's Purpose

Something has been bothering me, especially after writing my last two posts. I feel as if I'm losing the focus, or the purpose, of this blog. Ultimately it was (and still is) a way to help families who are struggling, feel less alone and less isolated. Your family may be experiencing pain, frustration, and feel completely lost and overwhelmed, but guess what? Us Too. We too have struggled over at the Beck household, as many families have.

In my mind the most effective way to accomplish this, is to share our story. Here's where I begin to have concerns and doubts. I don't want Us Too to be a mom gripe-fest. I don't want it to portray Jordan as the "problem child".  There is never a problem child. There is only a problem that needs to be addressed.

As I have said before, raising a child who possesses all of the "super powers" that Jordan has, ultimately made me a better parent. And it certainly made me a better person. Yes, at times I was shocked, confused, and angry. But these were MY issues, not her's.

I felt as if I needed to make this clear, not only to those who read Us Too, but also to myself. Sure, we have been through some difficult times, as all families have. But it was, and is, never the fault of one person. A family is an entity. All of it's members have the responsibility to do the best they can, to help this "entity of love" thrive and succeed. That is what each of the Becks have always done, and will continue to do.

Thank you.

Us Too
