Re: Being a parent is the hardest job in the world

We hope our kids will be perfect when they are born. Then come the trials and tribulations of illnesses, toddlerhood, adolescence, young adulthood, etc. Nobody is prepared for it.

Our oldest son has Asperger's. What makes it even harder is he's aware that he's "different". He knows he has limits that other people don't have and it frustrates him so much that he gets deeply depressed. Our other son is gay, which I don't mind at all as long as he's safe and happy, but I've come to the realization we'll never get grandkids from either of my sons. In between my sons, my wife had a baby that died at birth. Hard on me but excruciating on her. Life. Ugh.

I wish I had good advice for you. It sounds like you're doing all you can do. Be there for your son in good times and bad. It sounds corny, but I believe you will be rewarded (as will he) in the afterlife. He will be perfect some day!!
