Moment of awe
By The Fragile X Files on May 03, 2014
I had a moment of awe at AJ's cognitive ability this morning. When your child has Fragile X and you watch him grow up and struggle with things like holding a spoon, unlocking a door, and putting his shoes on the right feet, you carry that with you when forming expectations of what other kinds of cognitive things he might struggle with. You don't want to have these preset notions and somewhat lower expectations but we are only human, right? . . .
