We struggle everyday with how to balance her safety without locking her up in her stroller and breaking her spirit. We truly believe that if Olivia cannot at least try to run and play with the other kids that she will give up the fight. It makes us so sad. All she wants out of life is to be able to play and read like a normal kid. Please keep her in your prayers as the summer is usually her best time of the year.
Olivia a week after her fall, doing her "bead work".
On a good note, she is enjoying playing in our new sand box and swimming in the pool. She also loves to do her "homework" daily and spends an hour at a time coloring everything just so. We are planning for her big "Wish" in October where we will all be going to Disney. We found out that Make A Wish was able to rent an RV for us to drive down and back in. Our whole family is looking forward to it. I can't say enough good things about Make A Wish and will be forever grateful to them.
