I wanted to show off my little mascot for my nursery. It was drawn by my 13 year old daughter who was diagnosed with low functioning autism with no language at age 3. She is now considered mid to high functioning and speaks both French and English. She likes to draw cartoons and anime so I asked her to draw me a little zebra with a paint brush.
Ive posted about this before but I decided to use my nursery as a way to spread awareness of my connective tissue disease Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. People with EDS are known as Zebra’s. I send something “zebra” home with all my babies…a plush or a blanket. Ive also just gotten the equipment to make pacifier holders that will have a zebra ribbon on them. I also send an information sheet about the type of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome I have and also list the other types, home with my babies. My new Facebook page is called Reborns by Zebra if anyone wants to come by. Right now I only have three babies posted but Ill be posting more soon. We have been very busy with summer goings on and we just picked up my step daughter from the airport in Paris on Sunday. She will be attending a University here in Lyon and its a huge change for her…she will be living in the dorms starting the very end of this month and attending intensive French classes. Fortunately her classes at University will be in English but they do what her to be fluent in French as well.
Here is my little zebra…he will also be making appearances on my photos from now on
