Rapunzel, Rapunzel, Let Down Your Hair

January 26, 2011 by Victoria Strong

When I was little I desperately wanted long hair...really long hair. My sister did, too, so this was a common theme to our dress up games.

January 24, 2011 by Victoria Strong

Our sweet butterfly is napping right now. I'm sitting next to her listening to the rhythmic pattern of her bipap helping her to breathe and I can't not be right by her side. I'm so, so glad to be feeling better just so I can be near my little girl again. She's had a busy morning of horse races,...

Our Power Chair Superwoman

January 18, 2011 by Bill Strong

Today was an incredible day for us and for Gwendolyn. Her shiny new power chair has been in for about a month, but we've been tweaking and fine tuning the set-up weekly so it fits perfectly and provides her the best positioning to drive independently. There are still more tweaks to be made, but...

Remember the awesomely creative Trike-A-Thon fundraiser put on by my two childhood friends? This got me all throat lumpy at just the idea -- I'm telling you, children helping children just does it to me -- and then to see the pictures, well I should just buy stock in Kleenex! What is so amazing...
