I spend a lot of energy focusing on moving forward, but when I take a moment to look back, I’m amazed at how far we’ve come.
Moreover, how far she has come.
She wore legs braces to help align her ankles, knees and hips.
She worked hard at physio every week.
She practiced standing and balancing and taking a step or two holding one of our hands.
Then she took a few steps on her own. It was hard work and it took years and a lot of effort.
And then one day she just did it. She fell a few times, but got up and tried again until she got just walked right across the room all on her own.
I still get choked up when I watch the video of that magical moment.
Walk on, walk star. We’re proud of every step you take.
