What would be your dream if you won the lottery? I ask this question often and am not really surprised by the answers I receive.
Exotic holidays, the fastest cars, best clothes, new houses, people dream about them all.
My dream is different.
I would buy a new house, but it would have to be built with purpose designed bedrooms for disabled children.
If money was no object I would adopt. I would open my home to children with severe needs who are in care. Maybe from this country maybe from others, the destination isn’t the issue the need is.
I dream of a new car, a fully adapted wheelchair accessible van. Crazy I know.
My heart is full of love for children with disabilities that was the legacy my daughter left deep inside me. It’s a heart I am so grateful for. It has brought me pain but so much joy to.
As a foster carer of children with special needs I do get in a way to live part of my dream, but the reality of fostering is the lack of forever for the child. I want to offer forever. I want to give forever.
Am I insane maybe but i know without a doubt I would be happy. Off course being a lottery winner would also allow me to take Livvy’s Smile to the next level. It would also open up funding for Rett Syndrome Research Trust two charities’ which have my heart.
As I write this I remind myself that I don’t actually have a go on the lottery, not really into the concept of gambling, then I question if I don’t take the chance how can the dream be achieved.
Any suggestions on this, do I have a go or not?
