    7. 1. Tatyanna met the leader of the beleaguered NDP party.
      2. Her sister chose Batten Disease.
      3. Suitcases...they are like rabbits.
      4. Milk comes in bags, with pictures of cute little cows prancing across the surface.
      5. A pony/western clothes.
      6. Orange....how cool is that??
      7. A huge smile. =D
      8. "This you foffee mommy. You like it."
      9. Spread peanut butter on the TV.

      I have a son who was born 2 lb. 10 oz. and had a lot of medical problems over the years. Reading through the blog brought back a lot of memories for me. My son is now a big, tough 16 year old with a brown belt in tae kwon do, but there was a time when doctors told us things like he'll never talk, never play sports...blah blah blah...everything they said he wouldn't do, he's done! He still has sleep apnea and will probably alway have to use a CPAP at night and his left side will always be a little weaker than the right because of mild CP and he learns things a little differently than most kids, but that's ok, because he knows these things never have to stop him from being who he wants to be. We never looked at his differences as problems. They are just part of who he is and we love him just exactly as he is. The only thing I'd trade is the physical pain he had to endure at times...everything else, I'd keep because I know we have been so blessed to have such a special person in our lives. I, like Tatyanna's parents, have learned to see the world from a whole new perspective because of the path we had to walk and I can say it looks absolutely beautiful from here. <3

    8. Happie Hippie Chick, your comment made me cry, not tears of sadness, but of gratitude and of awareness of blessings. Never give up HOPE, because you never know where the path will lead you. Just let yourself be guided :)

      I am so thankful for your sharing your story with us, it is indeed absolutely beautiful. Your son is a very strong kid who's had the will to fight, and the support of his family. You are all blessed souls to have met eachother :)

      Thank you so much for reading Tatyanna's blog and for playing the Tatyanna Smiles game. I feel inspired every day by her amazing strength to smile and make everyone around her feel better. She is very much like your son, a child who has gone through a lot in life, yet has managed to become a blessing to many.

      My heartfelt thanks for being you, for being such a wonderful mom, and for putting more happiness into the world ♥

    9. I'm loving playing your games!!! You are so creative to come up with all these cool ways to promote your Artfire studio and Tatyanna's blog!!

      Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad that sharing my son's story touched you. You are right, never giving up HOPE is how we get through the things we have to get through, because we will always have something to get through...big or small, there's always something. lol

      Oh and....I'M IN THE LEAD!!! ;P Go me!! =D
