He knew one day you would be sitting in a pediatricians office and hearing that your child has a speech delay. He knew you would need someone to help you fight your fears and navigate the road ahead

So God made a speech therapist

He knew you would need someone who would see your child just the way you do. Someone that would see all their potential, their hard work and their heart instead of their labels

So God made a speech therapist

He knew your baby would need someone that was just like you, not willing to give up on your child and would see their soul and hear their words even when they couldn’t even speak instead of just their chart and their milestones

So God made a speech therapist

He knew you would want to fix this for your baby, that you would want to do this all on your own but there would come a day when you would realize you needed someone’s help. You would need someone to become a part of your village and walk this journey with you hand in hand, side by side

So God made a speech therapist

He knew there would be times when this journey would feel heavy, when it would feel lonely and even draining but He also knew he could make someone that would help you carry the heaviness in your heart and help you feel less alone on this walk

So God made a speech therapist

He knew you would need someone that to jump for joy over the smallest victories and cry with you over the hardships

So God made a speech therapist

He knew there would be times you would simply need to hear someone say, “You are doing a great job Mom” and “I know this speech journey isn’t easy but we will get there together”

So God made a speech therapist

He knew this journey wouldn’t be easy, that there would be obstacles and that hearing your child speak might not come easy. There would be days filled with endless tears and others where your heart is so filled with joy for your child and so many days in between and you would need someone who would be willing to be there for all those days, all those moments

So God made a speech therapist

He knew you would need just the right person to be by your side when you hear your child say “I love you” for the very first time or reach that milestone you’ve been longing to reach for so long

So God made a speech therapist
