A Borrowed Quote

A borrowed quote from one of my favorite bloggers Kelle Hampton, about her daughter Nella who has Down syndrome:

"Down syndrome for us will always float somewhere between "It is what it is" and "It is what you make it." Like any parent of any child, we love our child just the way she is...and we'd love for her to reach her full potential which takes some pushing for all of us."

Truth, sister.

Now let me write that again...

Cerebral Palsy for us will always float somewhere between "It is what it is" and "It is what you make it". Like any parent of any child, we love our boys just they way they are...and we'd love for them to reach their full potential which takes some pushing for all of us.

I have nothing to add. You nailed it, Kelle. That's my mission statement right there. 

Try it parents. Replace Down Syndrome or CP with whatever challenge your child is facing and you'll see just how how fitting it is. A fine balance, every day - with loving and supporting at the forefront.
