I know I said I was going to be positive when thinking of B's challenges but today I'm having a hard time.

Her PT told me today that she wants to get her fitted for braces for her legs. Not right now but in the near future. An appointment was made today for April 22nd to see a specialist at CDS. Right now B's disabilities aren't really obvious to most but with her wearing braces it will be. I'm not prepared for the stares and the whispers when we are out in public. I know it is petty to feel this way but I just can't seem to help it. If only I could look on the bright side and be happy that they are going to give her the support her legs need to stand and hopefully walk. Some days it is just so hard to be optimistic about it all. :(

(((BIG HUG)))

You shouldn't feel guilty for feeling the way that you do. You're only feeling that way because you want B to have as "normal" a childhood as possible. I bet once you both get use to the braces, it will seem normal.
