;) Hi All! ... I'm new to the Group so please bear with me while I get the hang of things...  :#
I'm A parent to A young man with CP and still find people can still discriminate against him, and I find that the hardest part of being A parent... 
I am so proud of my son J ... He's gone through so much but he's now in an internship at his old school and is doing great... 
He's proved all his Doctors wrong, they said he'd die before his 5th Birthday & if he lived he wouldn't reach 16.  :'(
He is A young Adult now & yes he's small but he's going to be around many more years... 
Keep strong and your dreams will come true.

    There will be stones in your path. You can stop and walk around or go over.

    Dreams can happen if wish them to be true.  Everybody has a dream some one once said.
