You're 21 and caring for a specail needs child?

As the subject line says, i was asked that question. I took Kadyn out and he was facin to were you could clearly see his shunt. A lady who obviously knows what hydrocephalus is, came up to kadyn and looked at me and smiled, and asked me how old i was, i told her with a smile (a confused smile) that i was 21. Her eyes widened and she asked how do it. I told her that i take it day by day. I cherish the days he is with me and i just give him love. She gave me a hug and told me that from the look sof it i was doing a great job. She told me he was the cutest baby she had ever seen. She had asked me what vehicle i had driven, i told her i drive a truck and it was green and had tinkerbell on it. (we had conversation) we said our goodbyes.. I continued shopping and when i came out to my truck. I had found on the window a bag with a thank you card and a outfit for Kadyn. I was baffeled yet happy. I opened the card and there was 20 dollars in it. It was from the lady in the store. I wish i could find her and let her know how thankful i was. Its hard to find someone willing to love a child who appears different in the eyes of another.
I cryed. I cryed happy tears. As i put kadyn in my truck and i gave him a kiss and i told him, one day you will change the world my love. One day you will grow up and everyone will always love you. I drove home with a smile on my face, people must of thought i was nuts LOL. just smiling.
I have learned now that i dont care if people stare. Let them, thats the only glimps of awesomeness they will ever see again. I smile now, and i will say hello. I tell kadyn whenever some stares to just ignore it and smile. The simple fact is, im happy and he is happy.

Well anyways i am going to go now. I need to be to work at 7 but kadyn is still awake :-(

That is the sweetest thing! I've heard this said: to the world you are just one person...but to one person you might mean the world. There need to be more people like her. Blessings to you and your family!
