I am in between a bluebird and a mockingbird...depends on the relationship and trust between myself and the person helping my child. The doctors I have formed the best relationships with are the ones who understand how much I do at home on my own for my daughter and they take my suggestions and ideas for her care without brushing me aside...and likewise I trust them completely when they have to make decisions for her.
I like this quote:
"The most beloved and trusted physicians are those who have been able to form a partnership with the Mockingbird parent, who acknowledge the fear and uncertainty they feel when faced with a new set of healthcare providers, and who treat them with the respect and understanding they deserve–oh, and who refuse to allow themselves to be chased out of the neighborhood."
Thanks for this blog, I love following it.
