Michelle is a smart woman. She knows that with a little research, she can probably find some exercises she can do with Joseph to support his speech development. With cost being a major barrier, she decides to put homework aside so she can teach Joseph herself. As a result, she has to stay up until 2 am every day just to finish her homework.

Joseph loves spending time with his mom and it’s working! He’s starting to put together two and three word phrases. His siblings understand him better and he’s feeling far more confident.

But Michelle is so tired. She knows this won’t last forever but she’s struggling.
