Rated "G" by the Author.

I do not want to be defined by my disability. I may not be able to walk, and my speech may be hard to understand, but I am just like every other person. I want a chance.

 

 

My Name is Kianna and I am twelve years old.  I have Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Quadrapalgic Cerebral Palsy, which means all four of my limbs are affected.  I have Cerebral Palsy, but it does not have me.

All I have asked is to be understood, to have people look beyond what's on the outside and see me for the person I am.

I do not want to be defined by my disability.  I may not be able to walk, and my speech may be hard to understand, but I am just like every other person.  I want a chance.

I am a person first, a person that just happens to have Cerebral Palsy.  I do not want to be treated like I don't matter here.  When I was a little girl I heard people tell Mom oh that poor thing, I am so sorry why don't you have her put in a home.  Like I wasn't sitting right there, like I didn't understand.  I mean come on I may be in a wheelchair, and my speech may be difficult to understand but I am not deaf and I understand what you are saying. 

I am so glad Mom told them not to speak like that.  She told them that I understood what they were saying, and I was her miracle.

I thank God Mom didn't put me in some home because I was to hard to handle.  I did not ask to have this disabiilty, but I have it and all the negativity and bad attitude in the world isn't going to change that.  I enjoy life, despite everything and I am not going to let anyone define who I am.  Just because I don't talk so well, and I don't walk doesn't mean I don't have a voice, because I do.

And Please don't think I am retarded I don't understand what you say.  Some kids with Cerebral Palsy do have those issues, but we all don't.  I was moved up two grades and I am in advanced classes, so mentally I learn just fine.  It's only physically that it effects me.

God Bless

Kiana!
