They Said

They said to me, “take your daughter home to die”, at 2 weeks old.

They said to me she was blind. 

She can see and is long sighted

They said to me she would be non responsive and not aware we are here

She is sociable and loves being around people laughs jokes and is happy.

They said to me she would not be able to eat so tube fed her until 2.

Then took out tube she has never stopped eating.

They said to me she wouldn’t walk.

She walks and runs.

She is 22 now.

They said to my daughter to terminate her pregnancy at 32 weeks as her baby wouldn’t survive pregnancy.

She didn’t listen

They said to her he wouldn’t survive a few days beyond birth.

He is nearly five.

They seem to have said a lot, they were wrong.
