A Mom's Story and Not Being Thankful

 A must read blog post beautifully written and posted this week in Coffee + Crumbs which is a "collection of stories about motherhood, love, and the good kind of heartache".
Colleen Powell, mom to Liam shares her personal story, thoughts, and emotions about her journey with cochlear implants for a listening and spoken language outcome. For me, this article was such a reminder of what parents go through - not always what we think they will. 
How as LSL professionals do you allow space for the range of emotions that families experience?
