In Zoomingmamma Always On The Go, I lightheartedly describe my, in many ways, special life story. Let yourself be taken on a journey where you'll discover the world of someone who does not let her handicap get in her way. A healthy mix of courage, commitment, dedication, love and humor lead to situations that make us realize it is not what we can't do, but what we can do that is important. The book provokes the reader into thinking about how we can better interact with people who have disabilities. These stories must be told to remove misconceptions we have of people with cerebral palsy and other handicaps. In turn, making our perceptions more positive.
Whenever my mother and I discussed how I’d raise my child she’d always say: “You have to find a man first.” “I know that too mom! It'll be fine.”
Of course I knew what she meant, it’s logical and biological, a woman needs a man to have a child. Even women who go to a sperm bank, are dependent on a man. At that moment I did not know when or how, but I was certain I was going to have a husband, a child and a “normal” life.
“I hope so, but I don’t think there’s a man who would want to take care of you. Dad and I have to take care of you, because you are our daughter, that is something very different.”
She was right - it was quite different. They call it unconditional love.
