I am a wife and mother taking life one step at a time.
I was diagnosed with cerebral palsy before I was 2. It is a mild case, affecting my right arm and leg. I learned to walk without mobility aids at 25 months and was mainstreamed in school. After graduating with a BS, I got married and had two children. In 2003 I had a story I wrote about my oldest child’s love of horses and great imagination published. I’ve loved writing since I was very young.
living with cerebral palsy
writing poetry I begin
to lose constraints my mind is free
words give me possibility
