Be Aware

October is Spina Bifida Awareness month.  This accurate sentiment was written by another momma and shared on Facebook.  To which I say, "like. like. like."

Spina Bifida Awareness:
 You should be aware that having a child with SB may cause
 increased motivation to help others,
 a newfound perspective in times of trial,
 a desire to enjoy the little things & 
a commitment to change the way the world defines "disability".

 Studies show that raising a child with SB will
 induce strong feelings of  gratitude for even the simplest of milestones &
 produce a willingness to do anything,  talk to anyone,  try any method necessary
 to make life better for your child.

Side effects include feelings of 
worry, fear, uncertainty, and anger 
all tempered with love, faith, determination and hope.

 Having a child with SB is not easy
but loving him is !

It was also interesting to look back at my thoughts on Spina Bifida Awareness from last October.  Our sweet babe was just weeks old and had already taught us so much.
