Today one of our friends shared with Chris and I separately a story of a girl with Cerebral Palsy. She told me how much amazing progress she made through intensive therapy and how she lives such a full life. Her son also struggles with a serious disability and we talked on about mourning at times when we remember the reality of the situation. She also reminded me how important it is to count your blessings and believe in your children. Other friends commented today how they thought she was making really positive progress. It helped us see the good side to the journey.
I know there is nothing Rachel can't do and she will overcome this. It won't be easy and we are all going to have tough moments but it will happen.
