Tomorrow is Father's Day and I can't help but think about the man who raised me with love and understanding.
Growing up I watched my dad come home from a long day of working construction, yet he always had time to ask me how my day was or play a game with me. This time was always filled with smiles and laughter. He never doubted my abilities to make my dreams come true, but more importantly, he never treated me differently because of my physical limitations.
I can honestly say that I am who I am, because of my dad. He made me a caring, happy, strong woman and I will be forever grateful for all he has done for me. I love you Dad!
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
