your kids first birthday party

Okay before you think I have gone off topic to plan the birthday party for your toddler here me out. Often for me being invited to a birthday party as a kid was an invitation that I got were few and far between.

This is because I found that because of having a physical disability can be a challenge and for people that don’t deal with it day in and day out. I don’t know if this was my own perception but I have often wondered if parents were afraid that if I was invited to their kids birthday party that I was somehow fragile and/or that they couldn’t manage to help me in the way I needed. Things like helping me to the washroom or even from the floor to my seat around the table or getting from one level of the house to the next.

so my question to you is this have you or your child with cerebral palsy ever been to a birthday party?

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.
