Oh, There are Times.....

November 8, 2009
There are times that I wish I had a crystal ball. Times I wish I knew what God had planned for my precious Kennedy. Times I wish I could lay in bed all day and sob uncontrollably. Times I wish I could scoop Kennedy up and run away. Times I wish Kennedy was just like every other 15 month old.......But, there are no crystal balls and if I could see into the future and changes the hands of time I would be a millionaire.

The holiday's seem to drum up suppressed emotions. When I was pregnant with Kennedy I remember being so excited to celebrate things like; Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter with her. I couldn't wait to see the expression on her face when she opened her first present, or found her first Easter egg. However, since Kennedy's birth the holiday's seem to be a time when Kennedy's disabilities are brought to the forefront. I try so hard to make everything as normal as possible, to provide my daughter with the appropriate experiences, but as time pushes forward this becomes ever so difficult.

I would do anything to change Kennedy's fate. To change her circumstances, but one thing I would never change and that is having Kennedy as my daughter.
