Not everyone know that I have a special brother. My brother used to be a healthy baby not until Meningitis paralyzed him.  It started with a high fever which turned out to be a disease that almost took his life away.

My brother survived Meningitis at 6 months old but his nervous system was severely affected. His growth and development were hampered and he remained bed ridden in his entire life. In God’s grace, he’s still with us and will turn 33 years old this year.

As far as I can remember, it was only last night when I dreamt about him. I partially lifted him to give him a better sitting position. My brother can’t speak. He can't understand words. He can't communicate. But in that dream, he said something to me. It was unclear but the words I heard were “Thank you.”

I woke up feeling suddenly bothered, worried and nervous. What does that mean? Dear God, you know how I feel…


  1. Maybe he was praying to God to let you know how much he loves and appreciates you :)

  2. I have a special needs daughter and to ask her a question and receive an answer you must only look in her eyes and you will hear her heart. Listen to his heart. Be well Diane.

  3. Dear Diane,
    sometimes things don't appear logical, but are still real or true. Maybe it is his way of communicating with you - through your dreams.
    Take care,
