When he was born I was 4 years old, all I remember is hearing the docs telling my pregnant mother he would not live through the pregnancy, when he was born it was he would only live a few days, after a few days they said he wouldn't make it two, you see where this is going he is a survivor, and he is now 28. It was not an easy life for him from the second he came into the world he had his first set of surgeries, total in his life he has had now 36. He is 80 percent def in one ear and was completely def in the other because he was born with his ear closed it never fully formed. When he was 13 he had a surgery that complete cut his ear off, they took out 3 ribs and a skin graft and he now has what looks just like a normal ear and he heard my voice for the first time. The point of this part is a boy who was always estimated to not live is a miracle and still is every day I have him. He was bullied his whole life, people yelling at him because he couldn't hear him and they were adults, and kids were so very mean. Even to this day he is bullied. Awhile ago he was standing inline at a grocery store reading an auto magazine when the line moved he didn't hear them say anything behind him, the grown very large man was screaming you fucking retard why aren't you paying attention. He was so embarrassed and hurt he left the basket of groceries he was getting our Mom to make her a birthday cake. He came home beat red and wouldn't talk to us for hours, finally he told me what happened and he was crying. This is the story of his whole life. Being the older sister if any kids messed with him they messed with me I was his protector and all through high school I protected him. I cant be their all the time as much as I try. Now he has scoliosis and we really do not know how much longer we have left with my best friend and brother. Why cant people see him the way I do I will never understand, but that is why I completely believe in your cause and understand. I have an eight year old daughter and I am scared out of mind of her being bullied and even worse her being a bully. I have told her how people are with uncle Christopher, I hope she understands what its like to bully someone that someone else loves so much. I hope this reaches kids all over the world because I know our youth is what can make the difference. Thanks for reading my story, my heart hurts for families who have had to go through this with their own children and my prayers are with the families who have lost their children because they felt the hate that bullies bring and have lost their lives.
