When I came to this earth my Mother was 24 years old.
I was welcomed into her loving heart.
There was no sign, no labels, no obvious reasons.
She took time with me.
She gave me opportunities to develop.
She heard my cries, long and full of pain.
It is her heart full of valor that believed the best for me;
that didn’t stop at the labels that limited me,
but continues to move slowly through open doors, that ever so slowly changes the minds, hearts and ideas of others.
The world will be different for Rett girls because my Mother believed in me, and in doing so has given hope to my silent friends.
I love you Mom,
