My 2 Blessings!

By Nancy Phipps and sons Corey and Kyle

My 2 Blessings!

I have 2 boys. Corey is 20 & a non-Fxer (not even a carrier). Kyle is 18 and full mutation. I am a single mom & they are the light of my life! Kyle was diagnosed at 9 months old. We have had good days & bad. But the good have out weighed the bad by far! Kyle still goes to school which he LOVES and in the summer he has been going to the same camp for 10 yrs now. Kyle is non-verbal and still not potty trained. We still work on it everyday and maybe just maybe… I have been asked if I ever wonder “what could have been?” & my answer is always, I don’t think of what could have been but what is “now”. He works so hard on all that he does & when he accomplishes them we celebrate! To quote Matthew Mickelson Butman’s dad…”I don’t thinks the worst thing that could happen to me is having a child with special needs. I think the worst thing would be to raise a child who is cruel to people with special needs.”
