I can’t believe that just 11 short years ago I was worried about Haylee living a normal life, having friend, doing things the other kids were doing. And here we are 11 years later and Haylee has attended her first school dance.
I still think back to the day when she was born and I was told she had no fingers on her little hand. I remember thinking that day. Would Haylee be invited to school dances, would anyone want to go to a school dance with her because she is different. I remember wondering what was Amniotic Band Syndrome and how was it going to effect Haylee’s life.
People look at her now and ask me why were you ever worried.
That is an easy question to answer.
I was worried because I did not know ANYONE else that had been effected by ABS.
I did not have anyone to ask the million and one questions I had running around my head at the time.
Instead I assumed the worst when I could not find anything online except for negative.
But Haylee has amazing me beyond words, she is more than I ever imagined and has accomplished more than most kids her age has. And the best part. She has done it all with one hand.
Oh and the school dance went awesome and she had an amazing time. And told us that she did not kiss any boys…..
