Kijk hoe tof! Ik vroeg aan @by_fabosaurus of ze een stoere meid kon tekenen in een rolstoel. En check dit resultaat 💥💪🏻 Neem maar eens een kijkje op haar Instagram! Zoveel gave dingen kan ze tekenen! En super leuk om de processen te zien hoe ze iets doet!🤩
Living with Spinal Cord Injury changes more then just the person who was injured. It changes the entire family. Our little guy has a dad who couldn’t until recently get inside his school, can’t go downstairs into his dance studio and watch him dance, has to wait at the top while everyone else climbs down the trail to see a waterfall. He has lost so much, but what he has gained is worth more. He is learning how to be part of a family and how to look out for his dad. He helps with grocery shopping and pushes the cart for dad. He checks on dad when he is having a bad day. He is learning how to be a sensitive and caring kid and what it means to help family. Of course we would trade it all back - who wouldn’t, but learning how to rise above the struggles life throws your way is something you can’t teach. It’s lived.

You forced us to grow up at the age of 20 & 26. You have been, and always will be the biggest reality check of our lives. You forced us to realize that most friends are temporary, and some become family. You made us realize our family is our everything. As much as we hate you for what you have, and continue, to put us thru, we also have this weird love for you. You made us realize how important life is. You made us realize how strong and supportive our family is. You were some odd and unfamiliar glue that brought us closer to the people who truly matter. We would give you up in a heartbeat, but we would never give up the life lessons you have taught us. Because of you, we are physically weak. Because of you, we are mentally strong. Because of you, we are who we are. You will always be a blessing and a curse 🥀 . Thank you God for allowing us to have this life that brought us together & united us as one. 💚 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
