I am missing 13.1 of my 5P arm. To most people the number 13 is unluckily but to me it is luckily because I don’t have my cells all affected with 13.1 deletion. Even though some of my cells have the wonky chromosome I still have Cri Du Chat and that is never going to change even though some of my good cells will eventually replace some of my bad cells throughout my body. I have my interests like collecting elephants and collecting Pokemon on my gameboy (I have several Pokemon games) and I also read a lot. The reason why I love collecting elephants is because they are luckily in some cultures and elephants are my favourite animals and because they represent wisdom, courage and strength which I show in my everyday life. I may not be intelligent to go to university but I show intelligence in other ways and sometimes I think I am wise beyond my years when I come up with my quotes and sometimes I don’t know how I come up with my quotes. I show courage in everyday life by getting up each morning and facing the day not knowing what the outcome of the day might bring. I show strength by helping other families who children have Cri Du Chat and for people to believe in me in what I am doing. I know that 13.1 is just a number and it isn’t going to stop me from living my life and marrying the man of my dreams.
