I read so many stories that are inspirational, especially when looking for something interesting to post about on the forum. But this was is lovely and realistically honest. The mom is from Toronto and she has Twins.
She talks of her difficulties and challenges that she encountered such as her babies waking in the night. She explained that the natural urge is to get up and go to them and pick them up but instead the nanny goes and brings them to her.
They are a little older now as you can see from the pic
During the twins’ first year, the house was filled with people to help the new family, including Burton’s personal support workers, a live-in nanny, a second nanny to help during the day, her mother, plus friends and neighbours. Whelan, 42, owns a home inspection agency and works full time. “I was worried the girls wouldn’t bond with me because we had so much help,” Burton says.
As she finishes the sentence, Emma and Megan rush over to show their mom a toy, one girl on each side of her chair, both chattering loudly, eager for Burton’s attention.
“Obviously,” Burton continues, “everything turned out fine.” Whelan grins and says: “How could they resist such a mother.”
Both parents are proud of how the twins try to help Burton by pointing out accessibility ramps in shopping malls and running to press the accessibility button that will open a door for their mom. Burton would like others to be as open-minded as her children when it comes to parenting with disabilities. When she is out with the twins and a female friend, people who stop to admire Emma and Megan often assume Burton is not their mother.
