Coen, FINALLY, after months and months of waiting, got his new wheels, custom fit just for his size and needs, and he is HERE 👏 FOR 👏 IT 👏 We are SO excited!!! I can’t believe what a gift this is to watch my boy absolutely free. When Coen first got his diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy, and talk and then the reality of a wheelchair entered into discussion, everyone- doctors, therapists, myself, other parents and friends- viewed it as a limitation, as if it would be settling or a lesser alternative.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
Coen’s chair gives him freedom! It brings him joy, it allows him to easily and effortlessly participate in games and play and be a kid and be confident in who he is! I’ll never forget the first time he sat in one, and felt his body take off and move across the floor with something as easy as a simple push. He is no longer confined to one place, he can move wherever his toddler brain attention span wishes! He can interact with so many more things and in an age appropriate level. I am so grateful for his wheelchair!
And I’m a million times more grateful I get to be his mom. I want to spend the rest of my life cheering him on. As the caretaker role becomes a larger proportion of parenting Coen, I am grateful that I am the one lucky enough to be chosen by God for the immense privilege of supporting Coen and loving him, however that looks. How in the world are Matt & I so blessed as to be his parents?
Coen, you have changed my life forever; that is a gift I can never repay. I love you, and love watching you live life fully! God made you just right, and thank you Jesus for giving us to each other! So proud of you buddy- how are you this grown up already?!? What happened to my baby? You look so big and strong and I’m literally the proudest most embarrassing mom in the planet and I care 0% 😂 Love you forever Coen!
