One of the Biggest Life Achievements- shared by a Supermum – Huma Anjum
This month has great significance for me, as this is ‘World Down Syndrome Awareness’ month.
When I look back at my life, after 12 years of being a mom to a child born with Down Syndrome, my list of achievements comprises things that I had to teach my child, that come naturally to a typically developing child.
Be it, her utterance of the first word, or the first step or the enrolment in a mainstream school, or the swimming sessions, or riding a tricycle and scooty…..and the list goes on and on Alhamdulillah!
My biggest achievement comes from the fact that this child proved that she deserves every right to live and explore the world when the doctors believed that abortion was a better choice!
I am Alhamdulillah a proud mom and would go to any limits to prove the world wrong! I wish to achieve a lot more for my daughter in the coming years, Insha Allah! And the list does not end here!
Another one of my big achievements is, that I became a food entrepreneur a few years back to support my family and especially to continue therapies for my daughter’s bright future Alhamdulillah!
