When I had @unlimitedtiaraoluwa , all I wanted and prayed for was a miracle, after all there is nothing God cannot do. I believed like my life depended on it, to strengthen my faith further, the theme of that year Holy Ghost Congress was REVERSING THE IRREVERSIBLE I was glued to the tv for the whole week, I can remember about three different minister saying God would change some old body parts and that he has the capability to create a new one even if it’s missing, I received the prophesy with joy and was so excited that the word was specifically for me. Every morning during the program whenever I wake up I would not open my eyes, I will stretch my hands to where my baby was sleeping to touch and feel if the hand has indeed grown, lo and behold nothing happened, I even informed friends and family about the prophesy and they will just look at me and smile I didn’t let that deter me from believing until the program can to an end. Was I disappointed? Yes, but I still hoped the miracle will happen and that God’s timing is not man’s timing. Today I can proudly say even though I didn’t get the miracle I hoped for, my baby has become that miracle and much more. TIARAOLUWA, just like your name implies, you are indeed God’s own MIRACLE, you are ENOUGH, you are different not less, you were born different to make a difference and I know with God on your side you got this too. #limbdifferenceawarenessmonth #limbdifferenceawareness #againstallodds #unlimitedtiaraoluwa #nolimits #diffability #iammorethanyoucansee #buildinganinclusivesociety #iamlimbable #limbablesquad #miracles #bellanaijaonline #dangnetwork #Godsmasterpiece #Godslimitededition

Another glowing entry in Harry’s home school diary about his manners! It’s something I’ve always instilled in both of my boys. Today I’ve cuddled him and told him how proud I am of him. Did he respond? Not really. Does he understand the concept of pride? Not at all. Does that stop me? Never. I will tell him until my last breath how much he means to me because I believe that he understands the language of unconditional love even if he can’t process all of the words. I KNOW that he knows. The twinkle in his eye tells me (even the false one 😉🥰) **image not to be reposted without permission** - - - - #ouralteredlife #specialneeds #specialneedschild #specialneedsparent #senblog #specialneedsjourney #disability #disabilityawareness #goldenharsyndrome #autismawareness #writing #ourstory #mysunshineboy #ilovemyboy #disfigurement #mummyblogger #blogging #specialneedsblogger #diffability #craniofacial #autismlife #autismfamily #faceequality #visibledifference #differentisbeautiful #unexpectedlife #choosekind

I had so much fun playing one of my dream roles. JACK from Into The Woods and yes that is a toilet paper MILKY WHITE. Thank you @gblueeyez @kimmyhale @itmustbemiriam for your work making this @deafbroadway production happen via @zoom_video_communications ! Can’t wait to share the @vimeo link with all of you. This cast is genuinely kind and supportive. There are #deaftalent veterans to new ones I’ve never heard of before. I love everything we did and I hope this production can actually happen with this cast onstage because the #acting choices were amazing. I love y’all! @joeycaverly @amelia8hensley @alexandriawailesofficial @annetomasetti @seago_howie @laurenridloff @shelika8 @theorangedude @apples22apples @thejohnmcginty @dickiehearts @iheartrout @wicked_express @moniquezen @anjel.perezz @aprjacksw

When you tell your son it’s bedtime and he insists on a kiss and cuddle and calls you his suitcase in his sweetest voice. Stalling skills perfection my boy 🤣🤣 **image not to be reposted without permission** - - - - #ouralteredlife #specialneeds #specialneedschild #specialneedsparent #senblog #specialneedsjourney #disability #disabilityawareness #goldenharsyndrome #autismawareness #writing #ourstory #mysunshineboy #ilovemyboy #disfigurement #mummyblogger #blogging #specialneedsblogger #diffability #craniofacial #autismlife #autismfamily #faceequality #visibledifference #differentisbeautiful #unexpectedlife #choosekind

Mother’s instinct is never wrong! I rang the hospital first thing this morning (the same one that booked Harry onto the 30th Aug list for a cytoscopy & confirmed last week that he was on). Today however, I was told that he’s not on the list and will need to wait until 11th October. Despite having a horrible feeling that this would happen, I lost my s**t!!! I’m sorry but you wouldn’t leave a dog in 6 weeks worth of agony & hysterics when performing a bodily function as simple as having a wee yet it’s ok to leave an autistic child?? FUMING!! Rang around private hospitals with my credit card at the ready but had no luck. Rang another hospital with no luck. Rang back to ours and complained. One of the ladies from PALS spoke with me and said she’ll see what she can do but can’t promise anything. Why is it so hard to get basic care for the most vulnerable people in our society?! It’s a disgrace! 🤬🤬🤬 **image not to be reposted without permission** - - - - #ouralteredlife #specialneeds #specialneedschild #specialneedsparent #senblog #specialneedsjourney #disability #disabilityawareness #goldenharsyndrome #autismawareness #writing #ourstory #mysunshineboy #ilovemyboy #disfigurement #mummyblogger #blogging #specialneedsblogger #diffability #craniofacial #autismlife #autismfamily #faceequality #visibledifference #differentisbeautiful #unexpectedlife #choosekind

Harry has just been hugging me in his bedroom. He stroked my back and said “smaaaaart Mummy” 🥰🥰. I touched my dress and said “what is this?” (Meaning dress). Harry replied “boobie” Erm....note to self, point somewhere else next time 🙈🤣 **image not to be reposted without permission** - - - - #ouralteredlife #specialneeds #specialneedschild #specialneedsparent #senblog #specialneedsjourney #disability #disabilityawareness #goldenharsyndrome #autismawareness #writing #ourstory #mysunshineboy #ilovemyboy #disfigurement #mummyblogger #blogging #specialneedsblogger #diffability #craniofacial #autismlife #autismfamily #faceequality #visibledifference #differentisbeautiful #unexpectedlife #choosekind

On Tuesday I was called to Harry’s school. He’d been distressed on the loo all afternoon and was unable to get on the transport home as he was still in the toilet. I drove from work to him and it took a while (and a split lip on my part - completely unintended) to get him home. Since then “toilet and then back to class” has been my mantra. Constantly. I’ve made him repeat it and fill in the blank words when I’ve paused time and time AND TIME again. Today he’s come home having had no issues at all. I asked him if he’d had a good day (knowing he had) and said “where did you go to after the toilet?” to which he said “back to class”. We all cheered and my boy beamed. Small steps but in the right direction ❤️ **image not to be reposted without permission** - - - - #ouralteredlife #specialneeds #specialneedschild #specialneedsparent #senblog #specialneedsjourney #disability #disabilityawareness #goldenharsyndrome #autismawareness #writing #ourstory #mysunshineboy #ilovemyboy #disfigurement #mummyblogger #blogging #specialneedsblogger #diffability #craniofacial #autismlife #autismfamily #faceequality #visibledifference #differentisbeautiful #unexpectedlife #choosekind

Other than almost a year of Harry being in pain with a mystery issue, 2019 has been kind to us. I can’t wait to see what 2020 holds (hopefully answers for Harry!) and I am wishing every one of our wonderful followers, a year and decade ahead full of health and happiness. Thanks for being with us this year. See you on the other side of midnight 🕛 😘 #mybestnine2019 #mytopnine #mytopnine2019 #specialneeds #specialneedsparent #specialneedsjourney #disability #disabilityawareness #goldenharsyndrome #autismawareness #ilovemyboy #disfigurement #mummyblogger #blogging #specialneedsblogger #diffability #craniofacial #autismlife #autismfamily #faceequality #visibledifference #differentisbeautiful #unexpectedlife #choosekind
