"God doesn't give children with special needs to strong people; He gives children with special needs to ordinary, weak people and then gives them strength. Raising a child with special needs doesn't take a special family, it makes a special family."

Not Walking - But progress

Tanner still loves his Stander! He is in it for 1.5-2 hours straight now. Getting stronger everyday! So happy he likes it, makes it less painful for Mommy.

Here he is laughing because he almost ran over Mommies toes! I had to jump onto the couch to avoid getting squashed!



I often see Tanner sleeping like this, and wonder.... can that really be comfortable??? It must be cause he does it a lot! So cute!




Tanner has been doing something new with his mini walker. He gets up on his knees and pushes the walker. It's not walking yet, but it's a start!

Our son Cameron is 4 now. We remember the wheeled stander well! He now has a Kaye walker, wheelchair (mainly used for long outings and getting on and off the school bus). It's an amazing journey. Every triumph seems a million times more wonderful with these little guys!
