A mother’s love, a daughter’s strength in the face of challenges, and lots more I’ve learned here. After you read this reblog, here is the School Presentation our writer talks about which I would subtitle, “After you say Hello, what do YOU really think of me?”
A month ago, I shared the Cri du chat awareness video with Emily’s resource teacher.
Emily appears in this video 4 times which, to her, is the equivalent of being a movie star!
Since she was little, I have allowed Emily to make her own decisions. I have allowed her to fall, to get hurt sometimes, to taste vinegar and lemon juice….. but most importantly, I have allowed her to learn how to make a decision!
Within a couple of days of us having the awareness video, she told me she wanted to present it to her class….
I didn’t see that one coming.
Emily knows she has a rare syndrome, she knows she is different and she knows that different is awesome because normal is boring!!! 🙂
Sometimes, she is sad about being different… she wants friends and a boyfriend but quickly she’s back being her happy…
