    My name is Hayley. I have mild cerebral palsy.

    I feel like my disability holds me back a lot from fun things. My family doesn't really understand what having a disability is like at all.

    I have kids though. They are my only family.

    My only hope is that they can build the family connections that I haven't. For their own benefit. On their moms side, I mean.
