The other day I did a post about my amazing mom, but she didn't raise me alone. My dad is just as wonderful, and I am so grateful for all the times he was by my side. I know that I don't always give my dad the credit he so deserves in raising me to be a strong woman and feel that this post is long overdue.
My dad was always good for making me laugh when things seemed difficult and helped me when times were tough. He would drive me to work when I phsyically couldn't, bring my family dinner when I couldn't cook and cheer me up on days I felt like I couldn't smile. Ever since I can remember, my dad has been there for me. I can honestly say that I am who I am because of him. Thank you Dad. I love you.
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!
