He’s typical of many siblings, lost in the shadows while the limelight shines on his disabled sister. So many aspects of his life are defined by his sister's disabilities. The truth is that if Bella wasn’t born with disabilities, I would have had no plans to write and share stories about Petie. Unlike his sister, he does not have a disability. When Petie was born, his arrival was a momentous occasion for my husband and I, but no more than that of any other baby. So far at the age of 7, Petie has hit all the usual milestones. He is successful in school, he makes friends easily, he plays sports in his free time, and is learning how to play the ukulele. I also know that none of this makes for very good reading. The fact of the matter is that it would be unlikely that Petie’s turn will ever come.
