Should I just give up?
Sometimes developmental milestones may not ever be met, other times we simply need to hang in there long enough. It may just be late development, with or without therapy. Once upon a time, I lived in a placed called denial for a few good months. I always just chalked K’s lack of speech up to being a late bloomer. Too many thoughts in his head maybe. Right.

I called mom for reassurance, only to hear, “I think you are right.” My shower that day hid the gallons of tears I shed while wondering if I would ever hear the sound of his voice. Despair overwhelmed me and my mind switched over to the constant expectation of “never.”
