Special Exposoure Wednesday

I've never been one to believe that my children can't do something. But, I must admit, I never thought Ronnie would be able to ride a foot pedal bicycle. In fact, I had already been researching hand-driven bikes for him.

But last week in physical therapy, the therapist suggested Ronnie try one of the bikes they have. It was amazing! It seemed like he had been riding a bike his entire life, and the therapist had to keep telling him to slow down!

Keep in mind, Ronnie is paralyzed from the waist down due to his spina bifida.

What an amazing kid!!!

Amtrykes at has bicycles adapted like the one in the photo. They raise money so your child can get it for free. Ben just got his second one and it is amazing.
