It’s Mother’s Day! This is what I posted today to honor my mom. ??
My mom means so much to me. She has been my #1 supporter since day one. My disability was a delivery room surprise (even though she has said she had a feeling that something was up while pregnant). She was able to hold me for a few minutes before I was taken to the NICU and she says that I looked right into her eyes and we have had an unbreakable bond since. I wouldn’t be where I am without her! She has been with me during countless doctor’s appointments, hospital stays, surgeries and major illnesses. Growing up she always focused on making sure my quality of life was a high priority: sending me to preschool and beyond instead of homeschooling because I loved school. When we would have awkward interactions with people out and about she tried to focus on educating them. As I got older and things got scarier health wise she was right there. I remember leaving an appointment and I started bawling before even making it out of the parking structure because I was scared and overwhelmed. She comforted me by saying “I’ve got this. You don’t need to worry or stress about these decisions right now. I’m the mom, let me worry.” That meant so much. ? As an adult now we still have a super strong bond. I know she’s always there for me, pushing and helping me to be all that I can be. My mom is my everything.
