Jennifer writes Building Castles where she shares her family’s experiences with epilepsy. Jennifer writes, “we all have hopes and dreams, and mine changed dramatically when Colleen was born. There has been an incredible amount of uncertainly of just what Colleen will be able to do, and questions on her progress is met with ‘we’ll just have to wait and see’.” Below you will find an excerpt of Jennifer’s story.
A passion for creativity was something I hoped to pass on to Colleen. From a child to adult, I have always had a love for drawing, music, paint…anything in which I could create something of my own.
As Colleen has gone through school, her works of art decorate our home’s walls. Whenever music plays, she’s dancing, and even when it’s not playing, I want to ask her what music she has in her head as a smile alights her face as she bops back and forth.
