Sure, this is a funny picture. That is my son Johnny, pinching my sisters boyfriend’s nose, haha! Johnny is special needs and often does silly things like this. He loves everyone, hence him sitting on Bryan’s lap. This convinces me that I will find a partner who can embrace my son the same way Bryan does. I won’t settle for a man that simply “tolerates” Johnny. I want a partner that accepts, interacts and embraces Johnny. I have to believe that there is someone out there for us 🙂
My youngest, Jonathan can’t travel long distances due to his medical condition, so he will stay home with grandma, grandpa, and auntie Mel. Leaving Johnny behind is a horrible feeling. As a mom, I want all my kids with me all the time. I miss him terribly already!! But if I don’t go, I will regret not going, and I will regret not giving Sara and Ben opportunities to grow socially and culturally. I haven’t spent a lot of time with Ben since he moved in with his dad 6 years ago, which has broken my heart.
So, I’m off to London today with Sara and Ben!! We have a layover in the north west (no, not Kim Kardashian’s baby! hahahaha), then straight away to Heathrow! Praying for safe travel and smooth flying! I will see you soon London! I will see you in 17 days my sweet Johnny xoxo
Johnny laid on me in the recliner while we watched the Stanley Cup Play off’s, Montreal vs. NY Rangers. Johnny would close his eye’s at times. Sometimes he would just lift his head and rest his chin on my chest and look at me and smile. Look at his beautiful wavy hair, and his cute button nose! Can you tell I’m in love? I’ve never known such a love as this before 🙂 (not that I don’t love my other two kids, hahahaha!)
This is my youngest child, Jonathan (Johnny). He suffers from a brain condition with a really long name. He’s 11 years old, but I swear he’s lived before!! He is non verbal, and I’m convinced he can see spirits. He is absolutely obsessed with airplanes! You can see he loves this airplane book so much, it’s taped together in some sections, hahaha. To know him is to love him. He is literally my sweet angel on Earth.
I have been coming to Disneyland since I was 3 years old. It’s a one hour flight, I’m lucky to so close 🙂
It’s difficult taking a disabled child to Disneyland, especially since they still make you wait in line, regardless of the fact that my son is cognitive disabled (retarded). Really, you think you are going to cut in line in front of me and my son!?! Mistake number one!!! I probably fought off close to 10 people cutting in front of me, at the airport too. DO NOT MESS WITH THIS MOTHER BEAR!! I promise you, you will regret it. What is wrong with people?
I didn’t want Johnny to catch wind of any problems. My parents and I stayed happy and smiling regardless. Of course there’s the exception, we met a couple of very compassionate individuals and several nice families.
Overall, it’s been a great trip. Everyone, especially children, should experience Disney at least once! Paris, Orlando, Tokyo, Hong Kong…..do it! If you have any Disney questions, I am very happy to answer!!
Flying home tomorrow morning. I promise to get back to my regular postings tomorrow evening 🙂
Life is good, go to DISNEYLAND
Audrey (and Johnny)
