Due to the circumstance, that I stated early, I as unable to watch her birth. So, then the nursing staff at NJC work hard to find me another mother. However; this mother did not want me to participate in the birth of her child. I finally had the chance to watch a C-section birth from a patient that just happened to agree to let me participate in her labor and
7. Don’t Worry If Your Child Isn’t Reaching Development Milestones My daughter didn’t start walking until she was thirteen months old—about the time all the baby books said I would need to consult a doctor if she wasn’t walking by then. So of course I stressed about it. She was also in pull-up diapers longer than other kids in her daycare (a stranger even once remarked to me in a public bathroom that she was too old for diapers. Yeah, rude parenting advice from random strangers is also a thing you’ll have to get used to).
This new diagnosis led to more hospital time, more medications and more doctors informing my mom I needed a transplant, still, she resisted. The doctors were adamant that without a transplant, I wouldn’t live past four years of age. Eventually, the days turned into months and the months passed into another year and I had beaten the odds. I was still sick a lot, made frequent trips to the hospital and faced an uncertain future. The doctors continued to have a less than ideal outlook on my life and advised that I would be lucky if I made it to twelve years old.
There are many who are not that lucky whose babies are sick for a really long time. Sometimes they predict that the baby may even die at birth. Some women have a difficult choice, do I continue the pregnancy or do I terminate and move on with my life? While I am lucky I never had to make that choice for myself, I don’t believe I would have chosen the termination route if there had been. I can’t judge the women who have had to make that difficult decision.
June 22 Dear diary Babies are little persons. I write you this because at the lab I saw how they were created and I want one. But what if my friends feel upset with this stuff of being a mom like Linda? I don’t know how to handle this. This is my personal little secret and I hope nobody can know about it.
Every Christmas, we watch our favorite our favorite Christmas cartoons. Whenever I say mom I mean my step mom, but she is the only mother figure I have known. She’s great, though. She helps me with a lot and gives me courage. My sister is very amazing.
When my mother was a wee child, she was adopted. So we don’t really know where this set of twins came from aka Christian and myself. Mom thought at first she grabbed the wrong kids at the hospital, and she might have. Right now I am looking for some answers maybe to tell me whether or not I will be cursed with a set of twins. Now as a fraternal twin I have to ponder whether or not I need to look into adoption centers so I don’t have 2 little devils running around at the same time.
What that teacher said prompted many doctors appointments and tests and speech therapies. That is a lot for a fourth grader to take on. One doctor told my mom I had aspergers and that I would never make it anywhere just as my teacher had told me. My mom was not going to take that answer, she took me to a specialist who diagnosed me with something else. What this doctor diagnosed me with fit much better and explained a lot to my mom and I.
There have been many people in my life who have impacted it both negatively and positively, but no one has had an impact in my life greater than my mom. This woman is just amazing in my eyes, right from the beginning because of the way she raised me, if I had children I would raise them the same way she raised me. The person she is, in general, has really had a great effect in my life, and also how she has always told me about the struggles shes had in her life from the ones I didn't see to the ones I have seen with my own eyes. I believe if I didn't know my mother as well as I do, she wouldn't have influenced me as much as she does. The way my mom raised me has made me the person I am today, so if I were to say she didn't impact my life I would be lying.
So you can say my mom had to grow up quick, and surprisingly not once ever quit on the job of being a mom. My mom, the best example I could ever have in this life. My mom’s life really fascinates me, so I’m going to explain the growing up my mom had to go through in her child hood. The journey my mom had of having kids of her own. Then lastly where she currently stands to this day.
