Mother's Day Finale Post Feat Sayuri.

Hello everyone..! We finally come to the end of The Mothers Day Special Series.
Just like we started this series with a special person aka Aai..I wanted to end it on a similar note.

And I could not think of anyone better than Sayuri.
If Aai is my Ganesha..Sayuri is My Super Woman.

Sayuri needs no introduction. Her Guest Post on Autism, got So-Saree, record number of hits and may I underline Genuine Comments rather than Follow Me comments.:)

Such was the impact of her post, that I am still flooded with messages, emails and comments telling me how touched they were with her story.

So my pick for the finale post had to be her...
A Rock and Rock Star both at the same time..
I have no words to say how much she inspires me.

Sayuri and her son Vihaan

"I am often asked to describe the experience of raising a child with disability - to try to help people who have not shared that unique experience to understand it, to imagine how it would feel. It's like this -

When you're going to have a baby, it's like planning a fabulous vacation trip - to Italy. You buy a bunch of guide books and make your wonderful plans. The Coliseum. The Michelangelo David. The Gondolas in Venice. You may learn some handy phrases in Italian. It's all very exciting.

After months of eager anticipation, the day finally arrives. You pack your bags and off you go. Several hours later, the plane lands. The stewardess comes in and says, "Welcome to Holland."

"Holland?!?" you say. "What do you mean Holland?? I signed up for Italy! I'm supposed to be in Italy. All my life I've dreamed of going to Italy."

But there's been a change in the flight plan. They've landed in Holland and there you must stay.

The important thing is that they haven't taken you to a horrible, disgusting, filthy place, full of pestilence, famine and disease. It's just a different place.

So you must go out and buy new guide books. And you must learn a whole new language. And you will meet a whole new group of people you would never have met.

It’s just a different place. It's slower-paced than Italy, less flashy than Italy. But after you've been there for a while and you catch your breath, you look around.... and you begin to notice that Holland has windmills....and Holland has tulips. Holland even has Rembrandts.

But everyone you know is busy coming and going from Italy... and they're all bragging about what a wonderful time they had there. And for the rest of your life, you will say "Yes, that's where I was supposed to go. That's what I had planned."

And the pain of that will never, ever, ever, ever go away...because the loss of that dream is a very very significant loss.

But... if you spend your life mourning the fact that you didn't get to Italy, you may never be free to enjoy the very special, the very lovely things ... about Holland."

No one could have penned it better.:)

I love this Tattoo..this is exactly how Vihaan looked when he was a little baby. :)

Chubby Cheeks..!

My Mommy Strongest..!

It's the end of the Mommy Series..but definitely not of the Saree features.
And so.. keeping up with the So-Saree Culture, we asked Sayuri to share some of her pics in a Saree.
Am will like what she sent..take a look and tell me which one you like more?
