Pour Your Heart Out: A Letter of Thanks

Welcome to Pour Your Heart Out- if you need more info on how to participate, check out THIS post. But it's personal- it's what YOU think is pouring your heart out. Please grab the PYHO button or link back in your post if you are participating.

Again, just a brief reminder that everyone linking is pouring their hearts out and we should all be respectful in our comments. ;)


For those of you who don't know, my 5 year-old has lead poisoning, which has caused him to have other difficulties as a result. Our doctors have only told us to wait until all the lead is out of his system and then we'll see how he improves and what we'll still need to work on with him. 
It's been a frustrating process because we don't want to wait, we want to help him NOW. Luckily, he was able to qualify to go to Occupational Therapy once a week. 

Bear has been going for over a month now. And what I have to say to his OTs, well, it's a perfect fit for the lovely Tonya of Letters for Lucas's new feature Letters for You. 
Please head over to Letters to Lucas to read my Pour Your Heart Out today. 

Link up your Pour Your Heart Out post and please visit at least the linker before and after you.

That's a wonderful letter and your Bear is absolutely adorable. You should send them the letter. As an Early Interventionist, I know, hearing things like that completely makes our jobs even more worth while. I'm sure the girls would love to hear what a difference they're making for Bear.

It is wonderful that you have found such great OT girls who are taking good care of Bear.

That was a beautiful letter Shell! Like I said at Tonya's, I think you should send that letter to the therapists. They would appreciate it so much!

A lovely letter - it almost makes me wish I went to OT, I could always use more playing. Or I could just hang out at the neighborhood jungle gym. But for some reason I always get strange looks while doing that.

Really touching. I wish bear the best. I didn't know he had lead poisoning. So glad you all caught it.

How aweful! I hope that your son gets better soon. sorry for asking (incase you have already talked about it) how did he get it?

Your letter is amazing by the way!!

I'm linking up for the first time Shell -thanks for PYHO.

It's wonderful to know Bear has such great OT staff to support him.

Awesome letter! And your baby Bear is such a cutie.

I'll head over. I remember praying for Bear. Friends of ours are going through that with their son and they are seeing a lot of improvement through a special diet. I'm sure you have examined all sorts of possibilities. This is a difficult situation. Sending you love.

Shell, Your writing always moves me to either laughter or tears. You put emotion into every word you choose. Not too many people in this world take the time to say thank you but most people take the time to make a complaint. It's so unfortunate that the world works like this. Until we can turn everyone around and make them see that support and kindness are what makes us all strong...let's just all keep trying with one thank you letter at a time.
Take care of your little Bear! He's adorable!
