Last year I entered the Memory Makers Masters Challenge. This was one of my entries. The topic was supposed to be about something we wish. I thought that many people would enter birthday pages and such. Mine was about Cortney. I photographed her from behind so the wheelchair was prominent. I also included two smaller pics that include her diagnosis and part of her IEP. In Adobe Photoshop I added the title, I Wish. The paper was Basic Grey. I typed the journaling and cut it into strips. Obviously it was never published, and I don't even have the original.....but I did make a color copy of it.)
Here is what the journaling reads:
I wish you and Kyle could fight over toys or the television
I wish you and Kyle could play board games together
I wish I didn't have to fight to get you the best medical care
I wish car rides weren't so hard for you
I wish everything that could help you wasn't so expensive
I wish you could share your hopes and dreams with me
I wish I could watch you get your heart broken by your first love...
I wish I could cringe the first time you drive a car
I wish I could fight with you over curfew
I wish I could see you off to college
I wish I could watch you receive your diploma
I wish I could watch your father walk you down the aisle on your wedding day
I wish I could hold your child someday.....
I wish things could be different sweet girl....but God has different plans for you....my wishes
are not His wishes.
I guess I have to see what path God chooses for you.......
