We had the amazing opportunity to meet the author of Wonder, R.J. Palacio.
I had thought about everything I wanted to say to her... I wanted to thank her for the obvious reason of writing a book that encourages kindness. I wanted to thank her for bringing awareness to children like my son.
But, mostly, I wanted to thank her separately from PJ.... Just from me - the former work-a-holic, abruptly turned full-time mother.
I wanted her to know that being able to read her books to children and enforcing her message is my new purpose. I now get to do something really meaningful and gratifying alongside my son. (And I also have Children’s Craniofacial Association to thank for that)”
