Wow! Madi Moves is 1 Year’s Old!
One year ago this all started. We were looking for a way to share our journey of living life with a child with special needs. We realized that not only was everything new and challenging for us as parents, but that we had so many friends and family who were with us on the same rollercoaster ride – wanting to support us and stay positive side by side. We wanted a way to share Madison’s life so that everyone could be on the same page, feel included and in the know and most importantly to us – to keep things positive.
We never imagined what this blog would turn into. We have met so many new people on the same journey as us, we have been able to keep everyone around us positive and motivated and we have been able to connect with people from all over the world. In fact, other then Canada and the USA – we also have followers in Brazil, Costa Rica, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK.
To date, we have had just under 10,000 followers with over 40,000 views!
What has become most special to us is that we now have this journal of some of Madison’s greatest accomplishments and successes and photos to match that she will be able to have forever.
We want to say a big thank you for being with us on this journey and reading along! Thank you to everyone for keeping us motivated to give the best to our daughter, to keep educating ourselves, for all of the help, positive and motivating words and for providing Madison with the biggest cheerleading team!
Thinking back 1 year ago and how far Madison has come is so special and very emotional to think about. Today we took Madison to Canadian Tire to find a toboggan. She walked into the store using her walker all by herself, walked up and down the aisles to find a toboggan and skates, paid at the cash and then headed back to the car. We never thought one year ago that she would be able to be so independent and that we would be able to do things like sledding down a hill by herself or purchasing Bob skates for her to try skating on her own. We think the Bob skates will work great with her AFO’s. We didn’t think at the age of 2 she would be able to be so independent using a walker. Thank you to all of her thrapists and everyone who works with her, drives her to all her appointments, helps us with equipment and tools for the house and everyone who loves her and makes her feel so special and loved. We can’t wait to see what we will be writing about on our 2nd year anniversary! Thank you for following!
