I asked myself: What does Spina Bifida Awareness month mean to me?
Honestly, I just want people to see Caleb. I want people to see Caleb living his life. I want people to see my family and how we are so very normal. I want that expectant mom that just heard her baby has SB to see Caleb. Oh, how I wish I could have seen a kid like Caleb when I was pregnant and scared. I want people to see that SB is a part of Caleb's life but it isn't his life. He's so much more than the diagnoses.
I realized that all of the things I want SB awareness month to be about....are all of the things I already do. I share Caleb's life daily. I share our family daily. It isn't bound to one month.
So, I'll continue to do what I've been doing for the past 10 years...share Caleb.
Because it is SB awareness month, I'll also be sharing a ton of other kids, teenagers, and adults living with SB through my daily Faces of Spina Bifida posts. The first post will be up later today.
It's going to be a good month, ya'll.
