I enjoy my life, I enjoy all of my children.  I enjoy my son with cerebral palsy.  I know it is hard trying to get services and special equipment for him, but it is just part of my life and I am willing and able to fight for what he needs.  Some people say things aren't fair, but I don't think life is fair to anyone.  I just want to be the best mom that I can be for my children.  I don't want to have days filled with therapy and standers and walkers, and appointments!  I want days filled with smiles and time as a family together, playing, having fun, and enjoying life.  I do not want to focus on what my son does not have, I want to focus on what he does have.  I am not here to focus on what the future holds, I am here living life day by day...and enjoying it!

Jun. 4, 2008 at 3:33 PM What a refreshing viewpoint! I loved your post, it was so positive and inspiring. Why not look on the happy side, like you said. No use making them worse by just seeing the negative things. I think you have a very lucky family. Some families get so focused on the special needs of a child, that they don't see the whole child, and also neglect the other children in the family. Like I said, you and your family are lucky to have your great attitude!

A great way to look at life. CP will overwhelm you if you let it. I take days where we do no therepy and just be a family (me and my two sons) I just have to have some kind of normal in my life and I know my son who has Cp gets sick of all the appiontments and equipment to. So we all just take a break.
