Dear Sue

Inspired by the deaf woman I met this morning.

Dear Sue,

You don't know me,
I don't know you,
So how dare you presume
To think that you do

You have once piece of information
And give it the meaning
That I have rejected
The essence of your being

My child's CI does not imply 
I am one of those  mothers
Who refuses to accept
The differences of others

I will  not choose between
The black and white path laid ahead
I choose the course unseen
The path of acceptance instead 

Of misunderstanding


  1. I wonder if your child could not walk and had a wheel chair if the woman would think you had not accepted your child's inability to walk.

  2. Good Night, I am mother of a child that also got Tegmento Pontine Cap Displasy.
    We are from Brazil e are going to Seattle in October/2016.
