10 Things We Wish You Knew About Differently Abled People Like Callie

December 15, 2020 in Warrior Princess - No Comments
Things We Wish People Knew about Differently Abled People like Callie…..
1. Please don’t stare. A smile and a wave is much better.  Staring hurts her feelings.
2. Callie can do whatever she wants to do–swimming, horseback riding, dancing. She just might need an adaptation or it might look a little different. She still can participate to the fullest of her ability.
3. Her prosthetic leg is not the coolest thing about her.  There are many cool things about her–her birthday is on Halloween, she rides horses, loves animals, and her favorite color is “glitter rainbow.”
4. Her prosthetic leg is pretty cool looking though😉
5. We wish we saw more people like Callie in media, books, films, ads, and on TV.  When we turn on the TV, open a magazine, or scroll online, we don’t see a lot of people that look like her.  We would bet you probably don’t either.  We would love for that to change!
6. Its extremely expensive and time consuming to manage all of her healthcare needs.
7. She’s worth every penny.
8. We don’t want your pity. We would love your compassion, acceptance, and empathy though.
9. We would love your help championing for people like Callie. Allies are amazing.  We would love to have more people advocate for inclusion, adaptive resources, and funding for people like Callie.
10. The disability isn’t the issue.  The accessibility and lack of adaptive items is the issue.

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
