A Dream Is A Wish, Your Heart Makes

As parents, we all dream about what our children’s future will be like. Will they be happy? Will they get married? Will they make me a grandparent? I’m a dreamer, I always have been and I always will be. Lately, I’ve been having a lot of uncertainty about how Jillian will grow up. I’m not dwelling on it or anything, it’s just in the back of my mind.

Recently, I was talking to one of my friends (who happens to be in a chair) and we got on the subject (somehow… I never know how my conversations end up here…) about sex. Immediately, I had to remind myself not to ask ridiculously personal questions. In my head, I was firing rapid questions asking just how it worked. Well, not how  it works, obviously I know the mechanics behind it. I’m very glad that I didn’t start just asking her random questions! That would probably be considered too much information!

I happened to come across a blog post from Exceptional Family. Written by Samantha who is an adult living with CP. This of course sparked more questions about what’s next to come. Samantha and her husband Adam are expecting their first baby and since I have just found this blog, I’m eager to know more! I mean, neither one of my pregnancies were great. I wanted to LOVE being pregnant and have a ton of kids, that just wasn’t in the cards for us. I am sure just as every disability is different (even with the same diagnosis) I wonder if there are any heightened risks on pregnancy and CP. I suppose I should break out my trusty relationship with Google.

While I’m dreaming, what do you all dream most about? I know that we’re lucky with no cognitive issues, but I still worry about all the what if’s. And Lauren won’t feel left out with this either, obviously I obsess about her future too!
