It's amazing how different my life is. When the girls started school, I had to ride my scooter to the bus stop with them. Now, several years later, I'm not only able to walk the girls to their bus stop, but I'm able to carry John in his baby bjorn as the older two walk on either side of me.
I was very hesitant to put the pack on my back and depend on it to hold my baby for me. It worked quite well. As I stood at the bus stop, I kept thinking about how in the past I couldn't stand on my own. much less hold another human being.
Everyday, I feel like I'm living in a dream and pray that I don't wake up. My three kids are such a gift from God and I can't take any of these precious moments for granted.
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!
