I don’t often talk about Connor in my blogs, but I will today, among other things I just need to get off my chest in the nicest way possible. 😛 I truly feel that the unsung heroes in the special need family are the siblings. Because Connor was born after Nicky, he never had to learn to accept EB, he just “knew” at a young age that Nicky was fragile and he naturally touched him gently even as a toddler.

It’s EB Awareness week and I wanted something to illustrate EB without being “graphic”, so I decided to read an excerpt from my book, “Butterfly Child“.

It’s truly quite descriptive. If you wanted anyone to learn about what it’s like to have an EB baby, this is what you need to share!!! Please note, I am not a “voice artist” and I do have an accent, but these are my words I am reading, so I did the best I could. Thank you for listening, and please take a peek at the EBMRF (ebkids.org) and Debra (debra.org) websites to learn more about EB. Love & Light ~Silvia Post Views: 463Read More →

September 2006 – When Connor was little he never left Nicky’s sight. He would sit right next to him at all times. It was so darn cute! Even today if I am looking for Connor, he’s not far from Nicky. Two peas in a pod! More of Nicky’s story in the book… Thank you so much for your support!! http://www.butterflychildamothersjourney.com/?page_id=19 Love & Light,   Post Views: 491Read More →
