I am so very excited to announce that today is the first day Sam rode to school on the bus WITHOUT his wheelchair.
This day has been 5 years in the making... and I know you have heard me say a million times...
"slow and steady wins the race"
"everything is possible...
the impossible just takes a little longer"
I have screamed these words through laughter and tears. I have spoke them time and time again to encourage others and more often times than not to encourage myself. I have mumbled them under my breath knowing that others thought I was insane to hope for so much. But today, with an over-flowing heart, I tell you again that I believe in the truth and the power of these words. I am humbled by the miracles that I have witnessed first hand in the form of a chromosomally-enchanced little wonder boy... and I know that we absolutely are blessed and lucky!
Well today I stand before you to share yet another long distance race won by none other than Mr. Naughty himself! He is living proof that everything is possible!
*insert happy dance here*
Words cannot express my excitement! So here are some pics of this momentous occasion.
getting fitted for his new harness... and you can't see well but he actually stood on one foot while he lifted his leg to step into the harness.... OMG can you believe it!!!!!
His first step onto the bus!
Lovin' his new seat on the bus!
Of course he had to get some flirting in...
Now that is one happy boy!!!
"Sam's Bus"... even has his name right over the door!
