Proud Citizens of Wobble Nation | #WobblyWednesday
Wobble Nation – the close-knit community of those who have or have had a fur-family member with cerebellar hypoplasia, and those who support animals with cerebellar hypoplasia. We have been proud citizens of Wobble Nation for over three years. Over the course of those three years, I have learned and experienced so much.
I have read and learned more about cerebellar hypoplasia than I ever thought possible.
I have learned how to make life easier for Sophie.
I have learned to “let go” – that I can’t baby Sophie, that she needs to learn to do things on her own.
I have learned that she CAN do anything she wants to do.
I have experienced the frustration and hurt of hearing others laugh at her or make rude comments about the way she walks.
I have experienced the heartache of watching her fall.
I have experienced the tentative excitement of watching her get back up and try again.
I have experienced the heartfelt joy and wonder of watching her eventually accomplish her goals… the Sophie way.
I have experienced the warm acceptance and support of so many, including our furiends and readers here and on social media.
Sharing my life with Sophie, being a citizen of Wobble Nation, has been life changing. Thank you to all of you who have been a part of this journey with us so far. Sophie and I look forward to many more wobbly adventures, meeting many more furieds along the way, and educating the world about cerebellar hypoplasia.
If you aren’t already following the #WobblyWednesday hashtag that we started a while back, we highly suggest checking it out – particularly on Instagram. It is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and warm your heart.
*Thank you to our furiends Po, Linus, and Lucy over on the Wobble Nation Facebook page for designing and selling these t-shirts, and for the awesome medallion that we won in their auction.
