This is about my best friend who never saw me as a person with handicap.
As, I grow up having Cerebral Palsy and going special schools, as child, I didn't have a lot friends. Most, time I spent my day in and out in the hospital, with surgeries on my left side for my Cerebral Palsy. So, it was very hard for me to have friends, because I couldn't get out a play like other kids do, and kids that were able body were kind afraid of me. Because, they didn't understand, what I had, and they thought that they were going to catch it. So, didn't get to play with children my own age. Sometime, I felt like outside, as child until I met my friend Gina Page, she was so different from anyone I ever had met in my life. Her mother was my mother best friend at the time. Gina into my life, when I needed a friend, because, I felt alone and everyone was able to get around and do things, and I couldn't. I have older sister, but she wasn't like Gina. When, I would have surgery on my left leg, and had to be in a cast for couple weeks, Gina would come over spend the night with me, and we talk about personals things that we couldn't tell or moms. When I didn't have any surgery, me Gina go to my basement, we dance. She would make up fun little dances that I could do with my disability. Gina spent more time at home , then hers, because they didn't live that far from us. One day Gina stop over to my house, I had just got out of the hospital, and I was in a cast on my left, and she said, let be blood sisters for ever. I looked at her so strange, but she was serious.
