Impossible is Nothing

I know at times, she hates me.

But she understands that all I want is to reach her maximum potential.

She realizes that it’s for her own good, because, there will never be a day when she will be free from it.

She knows why I push her to take an extra step or play that one more game of throwing the ball.

The other day, she saw me trip and fall down on the pavement as I lay there writhing in pain.

This time, she raised the bar… and walked towards me and hugged my weary but happy body.

PS : Cerebral Palsy is a condition resulting from damage to the areas of the brain that control movement. It is not a disease. Depending on the type of Cerebral Palsy and the area of brain affected, a child may not be able to walk, move, talk, eat, or play in the same ways as other children. Cerebral Palsy treatment depends entirely on the needs of the person. A child with CP may require the assistance of a GP, a pediatrician, a physiotherapist, a speech and language therapist, an occupational therapist, and/or an educational psychologist, along with a lot of support from family members. The aim is to help the child achieve as much independence as possible throughout his/her life.

    • One of our acquaintance had a child with CP and I have seen the child struggling to do even the smallest of daily activities. The care and the efforts put in by the parents for their child was simply awe-inspiring!

    • True, there is still so much of stigma attached to such illnesses in our society. Public awareness is much needed here! Thanks. Glad you liked it and welcome to this space, Sid 🙂

    • Agree, that’s a tough balance to maintain and it is difficult for the care giver both emotionally as well as physically too! And of course the child is troubled too.

  1. Beautifully written. It’s just amazing how parents get the strength. ..Both mental and physical to support each and every activity of the child…hats off to them.

    • I have seen a family from close quarters and believe me it needs truck loads of patience and determination when handling such special kids! Really hats off to them!
