I know as a parent most parents would just say this because it is there child but I must take a moment and brag on this remarkable little boy of mine. Derrick was born at 32 weeks. Derrick was born with a host of medical issues. I know looking at him and his grades you would never be able to tell but I must brag and tell you a little more about the student that you see daily. Derrick was born with Congenital Muscualr Torticoliis he favored his right side so he had a tilt in his neck the back of his head had started to flatten and his facial asymmetry started to become off which later put him at risk for a few more health issues such Scoliosis Asthma tracheomalacia and a laryngeal cleft. All before the age of one. Derrick was not your normal child he started physical therapy at the age of 7 weeks old every behavior a child would naturally pick up Derrick could not do. He couldn’t crawl because his back muscles were stiff he couldn’t hold his own bottle because his hands would not open because his muscles were so tight he could barely hold his head up without assistance. Derrick at the age of 14 months old didn’t walk or couldn’t talk he just looked and smile a very happy baby same as he is now but in a lot of pain. When Derrick was 15 months old I opted to go ahead and allow Derrick to have surgery. I was scared but a very determined mom. I wanted to give my child a chance I didn’t want to just categorize him and be accepting that his conditions wouldn’t change. Once Derrick had surgery he wore a HALO for a few months still unable to walk and talk but his movement was better and his muscles weren’t as tight. Fast forward past this Derrick didn’t talk until he was 3 years old derrick experienced developmental delays in fine motor and gross motor skills and because Derrick couldn’t talk he was labeled as a child with behavior issues because he would bite kids but he didn’t have behavior issues that was the only way he knew to communicate because he just didn’t talk. Though I can go on for paragraphs with all the things my child has experienced I will not bore you. I will just say this being inducted into The National Elementary Honor Society would be an honor and gladly accepting for Derrick. He is a student that has overcome so many hurdles before grade school started I am very honest with all of my sons health issues. I honestly though he was going to be deemed handicap because every visit there was some new medical issues and I was confused because he came from two completely healthy adults that were physically fit and academically intelligent. but I am one strong MOM I never questioned the test that was given to me when it came to my son and his health. I never gave up and I pushed and pushed and once he got to Pre K he blossomed. One thing that I am proud of most is Derrick taught himself to read. I have NEVER taught him he just picked up A book and began reading one day. I was shocked hence why his reading levels are so high he could read before grade school. He has always received the highest honors in school and he has never not made the honor roll. He comes home does his homework no questions asked he asked his little sister what she learned in school today he helps her with her words and he goes on about his day. He doesn’t get in any trouble he doesn’t talk back at all sometimes I have to call his name because he is just that quiet. This child is deserving of induction to the Honor Society.
