Raising a daughter to adulthood
Hey everyone, meet Halsey’s mom, Heather!
Halsey is a columnist here at SMA News Today, and you have probably seen her hanging out here in the forums. Today, we featured her mom for 31 Days of SMA and her experience with raising a daughter living with SMA.
From finding out about her diagnosis to now, Heather still pinches herself when she sees her daughter living life to the fullest. (Go, Halsey!) Raising a daughter with SMA didn’t match her expectations at all. But, the way she gushes over Halsey, you can tell her reality has far exceeded them.
What were the expectations the day your child was diagnosed? How do they differ today?
