The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?
Meet Cadence – this beautiful girl stole my heart. When I first sit down with someone, my goal is to always get to know them. Yes, it’s a quick visit – but my hope is that they will share a little piece of their heart with me. Cadence was very honest and shared the following with me. “I have a medical condition, narcolepsy w/ catalepsy. Any emotions trigger an episode. I’ve learned how to stop feeling emotions.”
What word did you choose and why?
As I have gotten older, and with medication, it has gotten better. I want to see if I can let down some walls to start feeling emotions again. I want to have a relationship. I want to experience life. I don’t have a LOT of friendships because I keep distant from others. I don’t want to tell people that I have this condition because I don’t want to be seen as someone with a disability.
Thoughts from her Step – Mom, Amanda
Amanda (her step mom) chose a word for her. A word that she wants Cadence to embrace. Grace. “I want the biblical definition of Grace for her- to be covered by Gods love. I want her to have grace for other people so she can build stronger relationships with others. I want her to experience life and all that it holds for her.”
