This iReport is part of an assignment:

The medical establishment sees our son with cerebral palsy as a problem. We see him as a shining star.
piano-playing, underwater-diving, song-singing, time-telling, game-changing,

and when you start playing, lean over to the person beside me and whisper, "I was the first woman he loved, you know."
on my way home from your performance
(when I step off that bus from NYC)
I will drive straight to Dr. A. Hole's office, storm past the receptionist's desk, shove your autographed headshot into his hands and say

nonmobile and nonverbal and
whose parents were in
because they didn't appreciate the
you so carelessly assigned
after seeing him for 5 minutes every 8 weeks.
you mother FUCKER.
