my thoughts of the early days?

I have been thinking a lot lately about life,

about how things could’ve and would have been different had I not been a preemie.

I know that my parents and sister were extremely active until; I a sickly, near death premature infant came along well I have and continue to amaze the world. But I would be in denyl to say there life didn’t change after I was born. My mom said my sister stopped playing after I was born, a child herself, she became vigilant and mindful of my needs and seemingly stopped playing.

I guess children are often more aware then I realized (I’ll be the first to admit I am not a kid-friendly person) I think that’s because they generally move to quickly or if infants I am afraid I’ll drop them if I startle.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    That’s interesting – and probably sad – that your sister stopped playing.

    And then, your later effects on children.

    I can’t speak for your mom and sister, but I can say that although having a child with CP can take a toll on a family, it can also yield indescribable gifts. Your family is lucky to have you.
    You’re right that children are much more aware than we give them credit for. In fact, I think they have some things figured out better than we adults.
