I can very much relate to the grieving of your lost child during this process. My 6 year old was hit by a car in Feb 2017. I too am having a very hard time with leaving the past behind. I have cried everyday for my child. I do not know how to get past this. My heart has been broken beyond repair. I am however greatful and thankful that after seven months he is attending school, taking slow steps by hiself, talking and eating on his own. He has small tremors when trying to use his arms. He has dramatically improved and we continue to work constantly. I will not give up but I am seriously broken on the inside. Thank you for your story. I can relate and have a hard time finding stories on young children with this problem.
