    Raising a special needs child

    The medical establishment sees our son with cerebral palsy as a problem. We see him as a shining star.

     
    You

    are

    a

    piano-playing, underwater-diving, song-singing, time-telling, game-changing,

    funny

    kind

    of

    fool,

    and someday I will sit in a crowded concert hall, in the front row, next to people I don't know

    and when you start playing, lean over to the person beside me and whisper, "I was the first woman he loved, you know."

    Hours later,

    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

    THIS

    is the boy you warned us about,

    the one with the primitive reflexes who's easily agitated and slow to soothe and

    nonmobile and nonverbal and

    R-Re-Ret-...

    whose parents were in

    D-Denial

    because they didn't appreciate the

    Labels

    you so carelessly assigned

    after seeing him for 5 minutes every 8 weeks.

    THIS

    is my

    SON,

    you mother FUCKER.

    HOW

    DO

    YOU

    LIKE

    HIM

    NOW?!
