    Hi
    Your blog is very good and very true. My daughter has CP and people never seem to see her they just see the wheelchair it really makes me angry. My daughter takes it all in her stride. When people say oh poor girl and the famous what's wrong with her my daughter just says I've got a disability which you can see but did you know everyone has some sort of disability only thing is you can see mine that usually shuts people up

    I really liked reading your blog. I agree that it's important that we are more patient with children and answer their questions as best we can.
