She saw what I did, and she worked with him and worked with me so tirelessly when she didn't have time. And she saw all the awesome parts of Ben that I know. And all of the awesome part of dyslexia. It is so hard.
I don't want him to be afraid of being dyslexic. I want him to be proud of it. Proud of his hard work and all the creativity that comes with it. And I want to change the face of dyslexia. I want it to be associated with that creativity and a unique way of doing things. The reading and writing struggle is heart wrenching and I don't wish it on my worst enemy. But it's so much more than that. It's bravery and creativity and being unique and confident and genius. Exactly the way God made him. And I hope he always knows he is all of those things.
