I just watched this documentary about parenting with Cerebral Palsy, from the UK.
I loved it.
I cried, I laughed, I sobbed.
Watching two people parent who happen to both have CP, but to watch the Mums of these two people is what got me.
To watch the Mums watch their children have a baby and still relive the trauma of their own births. To realise that maybe that pain never really goes away.
The adults who have CP see themselves as typical people, as a typical family who just do things a little differently ( watch the Dad give the baby a bath!) and the Mums who support and stand by and admire their children who they never imagined would be doing what they are doing today.
I could relate so well to the Mums living day by day and I loved listening to the Dad talk about his CP, his own birth injury and reflect on how his Mum must have felt when he was born. I loved his attitude about always being who he is and being happy.
I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did and that you see there is more than one way of doing things and there is always hope.
