I have my own story of heartbreak and sorrow that turned to great joy and happiness with my son. Your page shows the true joy that these “special” needs children have. You’re damn right they’re special. One of a kind, one in a million, and made EXACTLY how they’re supposed to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My son, William Emmett Murray was born February 11, 2016. He goes by Emmett. When I was around 4 months pregnant with him after some routine blood tests, they told me he had Trisomy 18. That he wouldn’t walk, wouldn’t talk, and wouldn’t live past two. After more test the diagnosis of Trisomy 18 was incorrect and they then told me he had Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum. They had asked if I wanted to have a late term abortion due to all the complications he may OR may not have had. I couldn’t make that choice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When he was 7 months old he had an MRI done at our local hospital and it showed that he did NOT have Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum, but he had Septo-Optic Dysplasia. As a result of that, he has what’s called Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) and is considered legally blind. In our case, there is no medical reason why Emmett is blind, he just happens to be 1 in 250,000 children that is, and I’m so proud to be able to say he’s mine. He’s taught me there’s so much more to life than what meets the eye, literally speaking.
