Do you have an apraxia anthem for your child?
It must be the perfect combination of melody and words that 1.) Inspires you to keep working and loving hard to advocate for your child and 2.) Reminds you how uniquely awesome he/she is.
I see this question presented every once in a while on the apraxia support groups and again and again, Katy Perry’s song Firework often wins by a landslide. I love in this video how fireworks are exploding out of her heart. I mean, doesn’t it sometimes – between the love, frustration, worry, hope, and fear – LITERALLY feel that way?!?
Every time you hear this song, I hope you smile and think about that rock star kid of yours. I also hope you remember there’s a big group of us scattered across states and countries that are walking through this whole crazy mess of apraxia,etc. together. This is our babies song. To all those mamas out there … crank it up.
