Letter to all Super mammas out there from an average mamma
No doubt world Down syndrome day is on Mother's day... (in this part of the world).
Because special super heroes and princesses kids need Super mammas, I wrote a letter just to let you know that I have been empowered by your power and that you deserve that super mamma title.
To all Super mammas raising special heroes,
I saw the tears in your eyes when you heard the news
I saw you surfing the internet over and over again to understand your child’s exact needs
I saw you spending hours reading again and again to understand your child’s condition in deep
I saw you asking around so that you don’t miss a point
I saw your pain when someone asked you about your child condition
I saw you blaming yourself for no reason
I saw you trying your best to get the nearest appointments at the therapists
I saw you replacing lunch dates with doctors appointments
I saw you crying because your child is not improving like you wished
I saw you looking around to see if someone noticed
I saw you looking around to see if someone is staring
I saw you trying to hide your pain and tears
I saw you loving your child like no mother did
I saw you smiling at your child like no mother did
I saw you fighting for your child like not mother did
I saw you being proud of your child like no mother is
I saw you thriving for him to improve slightly, just a bit better like no mother did
I saw you thankful for everything like no mother is
I saw you satisfied with the smallest things like no mother is
I saw you impressed with your child like no mother is
I saw you talking about your child like no mother did
I saw you saying the most beautiful things like no mother did
And the most important of them all, I saw you turning into a BETTER PERSON like no mother did
And you made me realize that I am an average mother...
Hats off to you super mamma and happiest mother’s day to you and especially you.
