And just why does God "give special kids"? He's so all powerful, so why does he make special kids?
(I am NOT the OP)
To the OP...You never really get over it. You bury yourself in learning about his special needs and how to help him the most. You throw yourself into his care. The guilt lessens after a while, but just as grief, it never fully goes away. And you are grieving....your grieving the "loss" of a "perfect" child. It's normal, and it's okay.
Just know that there may come a time when YOU need help. Find it. You're not doing him any favors if you wear yourself out, or find yourself deep in depression and can't come out of it on your own. (been there and done that)
