Post 84 - March 25


Today is National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day....


Ciaran and Shay's very premature entry into this world resulted in brain bleeds which contributed to both of their unique (to themselves) diagnoses of Cerebral Palsy.  This label will always be part of their lives....


That being said, they will NEVER be defined by these labels....


They will lead normal lives and with their own limitations....if we are going to be honest here, we ALL have our own personal limitations...Ciaran and Shay's are just a bit more obvious....


Their determined spirits and sweet and loving personalities will take precedent over their physical differences...


At the end of the day, the most important thing that we as parents can ask for is that Ciaran and Shay are HAPPY and CONFIDENT in who they are as individuals.  We will not and can not ask for more....
