This week we’ve realised something. Harry is attached to me in a way that defines and disrupts his life. He needs me with him all the time, telling school about me, counting down until he sees me at his Dads house. Today I’ve told him I’m away until Friday and that I’ll be home again in just a few days. His eye glazed over (not the glass one obvs 🙄) and he stood on the spot watching me get ready for the morning. Then he hugged me. The tightest, warmest hug that said “I love you and I need you. Come back safe and soon”. For a child who is limited verbally, he understands as well as many others. Even if the words aren’t always there, don’t think for a minute that the love isn’t 🥰 . **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

After a bit of a tricky Monday I’ve come home to my boys and a note in Harry’s planner that said he’d been telling his teaching assistant that “mummy’s always here” Thank you my boy 🥰 Just what I needed.

Yüzüme Bak!! Ben de senin gibi bireyim, herkes gibi biricik ve eşşizim. Farklı görünebilirim, ama beni ben yapan farklılıklarım, ben böyleyim... Beni sevmek zorunda değilsin, senden beklediğim bana irrite edici bakışlarda bulunma, beni görüp şükretme, benle alay etme, sadece saygı duy, birey olduğumun farkına var ve beni dış görünüşümle değil olduğum gibi kabul et... Ben Yüzümle Mutluyum... Bakış açını değiştir, değişimi gör... #yuzumlemutluyum #faceequality

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

"My name is Nathalia Moraes Freitas (@lovingmydots). I’m from Brazil, but I have been living in Los Angeles, CA since 2012. I was born with a condition called Congenital Melanocytic Nevus. A large birthmark that covered 40% of the right side of my face, plus thousands of satellites all over my body. From nine months to 13 years old, I had nine surgeries to remove my facial Nevus. Being different was always a big deal especially in my childhood. At school, kids were cruel and used to call me Freddy Kruger, monster, ugly face and that was very hard for me until I realized four things: 1. I was born like that, that was not a choice, that’s a condition. 2. I am healthy - I was not in a car accident, I was not in a fire. I AM FINE 3. Image is not everything - it’s just the way I look, it’s just the outside 4. It does not define me, I can do whatever I want, just like YOU. When I decided to embrace myself and love the way I look, everything became easier. Today, I share my story on social media and advocate for body positivity. I give motivational speeches against bullying and how to improve self-esteem. I have a background in marketing, love to cook and dancing is my therapy."
