I have worked with you for months, maybe years, and it’s almost time for me to say goodbye. We have been preparing for this day, but when I leave you, it still feels so abrupt.
When I leave you, I hope I didn’t talk too much, and that I made time to listen.
When I leave you, I hope you feel empowered that it’s you who still knows your child best.
When I leave you, I hope you know that you are your child’s strongest advocate, biggest cheerleader, and softest place to land.
When I leave you, I hope I helped you realize how strong you are.
When I leave you, I hope I gave you the tools you need to continue teaching your child and making progress.
When I leave you, I hope you don’t need me anymore.
Thank you for letting me into your homes and into your lives. Your children may not remember me in a few months or in a few years, but I hope you will. I will for sure remember you.
Thank you for sticking with me and for putting in the work, even when it was hard. Even when progress was slow. Thank you for trusting me with your child.
You have taught me so much about your strength, your resilience, your love for your children. You’ve made me a better therapist, a better parent, a better person.
When I leave you, I hope I made an impact on you. But what you might not realize is that you’ve really made an impact on me.
If you think your child(ren) might not be meeting their milestones, please contact the CT Birth to Three System. We are here to help.
