If she eventually asks for help, there is no frustration or defeat in her voice. She just wants help...either assistance or (mostly) more instruction...simple as that. I love her independent spirit and know that she will need it as others discover her disabilities and want to help her with everything or even shun her. But I often wonder if that independence will subside as she discovers her limitations...will she become frustrated or defeated or will she adjust and be her happy, cheerful self. As she is now becoming confident in trying things, I wonder if that will be taken away too soon. Will people always insist on helping...not to be harmful but because the want it done faster or just want to be helpful (I am guilty of this)? Will she lose that confidence and see herself as so many people will...just a disability?
