what I am thankful for

With American thankgiving approaching I thought I’d write what I was thankful for.  I am thankful to have my blog.  This media has not only given me an outlet to share my story of my life with Cerebral Palsy, but in doing so I have built a small but mighty international community. I can appeciate the complex heart-wrenching emotions that parent has to deal with when they’re young child is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.

They fear such things as how their life may change having a “special needs child.”  Other fears may include: concerns about quality of life for their child.  I started this blog a year ago when I was looking for firsthand accounts of other people’s experiences surrounding firsthand accounts of cerebral palsy.  CP as cerebral palsy is commonly known effects every individual differently, and it’s these differences that I am thankful for because it allows me as an adult with such limitations to provide hope and realistic picture of what life may be for them in years to come.

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.
