Yesterday I had an appointment with my dentist who I have been going to for years. Even before there were triplets or even Abe in my life. She always asks about my life and the triplets.
"How are the kids doing? Now are all three walking?"
"Grace isn't yet" I reply
"Oh she's the one with cerebral palsy. Now do they think she'll ever walk?" She asks
"Well we don't know yet. We are looking into having a surgery in about a year where the spastic nerves are cut and they is a great possibility she will walk. She is really doing great though. She's smart and has a large vocabulary. We had her tested and she will go to school with her brother and sister and.........." and on and on I went.
I have this need to explain to everyone that although she can't walk she is still so wonderful. She is still worthy. I want you to love her. Why is that?
