Prologue - Reflection
I am so very very touched to see you incorporate a child with disability into this story Kaylee. It is so much more common than people realize and so important to be seen, discussed, made real and normal. My son has a form of muscular dystrophy and very recently, after much soul searching, I included a disabled child in one of my Faramir stories. Thank so much for this
Thank you for reviewing, Sian :) Celebriel is, to a point, based on me - like me, she has cerebral palsy, though hers is more debilitating than mine. I also have epilepsy and high-functioning (very high-functioning, I'm borderline) autism. She'll probably show characteristics of the latter, if not the former. I think showing characters who have disabilities, and exploring how they would be viewed, is very important.
And you're welcome :)
