Has anyone ever had to do a double take. Like when you go to school for a party or something and see your kids with his peers and you think wow, they are different. I forget or get used to it. I had that moment today. Coleman has had a whirlwind of a kindergarten year. We have found out he needed ADD meds, he is severely colorblind, is left handed and now that he has some hearing loss. WHAT? I had read that hypo's sometimes had learning disability's, and my dad is colorblind (deuteranopia)which means he sees variations of the same color, but now hearing loss too? Does anyone else have any info on the hearing thing?

We have had a good year. Coleman has been on Growth hormones for two years now and it is going well. He is in Kindergarten. Life has its ups and downs, like finding out Coleman is color blind, or behind in school and then the ups, he is progressing in swimming lessons very well and is not falling as much lately. Since October is dwarfism awareness month. Make people aware of the likeness and the differences our kids must face. Everyone has something they struggle with, something they have to overcome or face. Everyone understands being different. Hope your October is full of beautiful weather and memories. Share with us any time.
