Different is…

Different is…

Different is the loooooooooooooooooong pause after you answer the question, “How old is she?”

Different is the questioning the new doctors have over why this “normal” child is on a liquid diet instead of table food.

Different is checking your schedule for doctor and therapists appointments before you plan a play-date.

Different is your darling explaining orthotics to her friends.

Different is the questions from the school-mates as to why she is acting like THAT.

Different is explaining “words” like IEP and GERD to your friends.

Different is saying; “Sissy, you are sweet I could pour you on my pancakes.”

Different is blowing Daddy hugs so hard he almost falls over.

Different is singing no matter where we are or who is watching.

Different is getting up and dancing in the restaurant when the Latin music moves you.

Different is chatting to the birds and animals on the walk and not noticing or caring who sees.

Different is saying my name is. What is your name? May I have a hug now?

Different is the one more hug, Mommy before you go.

About Susan

Hi my name is Susan M. I am the mother of 2 daughters. One is 17 years old and one is 7 years old. Both are very special girls. However, IM, the 7 year old has some extras in her package. She has Chromosome 18p-. What this means for IM is she has many medical concerns. She sees lots of doctors and goes to OT, PT, and speech. What this also means is that we are challenged daily to celebrate life as she does. There are MANY celebrations often. And we happy dance for them all. She loves to sing, dance, run, jump, play with friends and play pretend and teach us all about life in IM's world! In spite of the long list of might nots and probably wonts, she is a very bubbly and verbal and active girl. We celebrate life and differences daily. Thanks IM for helping us to focus! Hugs all! Susan
