Day 1: Ch 1-5
I know the feeling of being different and not being like everyone else. Shawn has CP which makes it so he can’t walk or talk and can’t do everything other kids can do.

Due to my eye problem it limits the stuff I can do and how I do stuff that normal people do. It doesn’t really hold me back on major things that people do just some things that some kids do I can’t do because there is a risk of something happening and making the eye worse or damaging the other eye.
