Between getting ready for Saturday and working on my homework for writing class I am feeling little stressed. I want both to be perfect and sometimes I feel that I may stress too much over the exact wording of my work. Soon I will have one of my first opportunities to tell the world about the secret that I have been keeping for so many years. It will also allow me to start overcoming the fear of how others will react. I think by accepting this challenge my daughter and I will both transpose from victim to survivor.
I have the privilege of being able to shape the minds and lives of children who are battling disabilities. It can be very trying at times, but more often than not it is very rewarding. As a mother of a child with a disability, I know the struggles that they go through on a daily basis. This allows me to have a little more compassion for the people that I work with.
