    For those that have been around the board for awhile, you have heard me talk about my little Grandaughter with CP ~

    Maddy walked today!! No walker.. No holding hands... no nada!!

    She is 4 1/2 and we didn't know if it was even going to be able to walk... We were excited when she started useing a walker!! But to walk completly unaided is such a miracle!!

    I'm so excited!!!

    I called my daughter last night and she is just ecstatic!
    The therapist had just measured Maddy for a wheelchair last week! And now this!!!

    My daughter was laughing and crying at the same time. She was like Mom!! I can buy my baby a Easter dress!!

    She has never had a dress since she was a baby because she drags her legs around with her upper body and tears up her legs.

    She didn't just take a step or two. She is a WALKER!!! She was walking from room to room last night and just giggling she was so happy!

    She was actually standing un-aided with her tippy cup.. a first!

    My daughter said she thinks she is going to have a fairly normal gait.. she isn't dragging a leg or anything.

    We think the miracle is a 22 year old horse named Bo-Bo..
    Maddy started horseback therapy about a month ago. The horses help teach them upper body balance and strengthen thier core. Something clicked..

    Something clicked.... Helen is trying to reach Maddys neurologist to share the news. They had a party last night at my daughters, all of her therapists and some of the other parents in her support group all came to see her walk.

    I truly feel like we won the lottery. Thank you God for Miracles!!!

    X0X to all!!

    Such great news! Madisyn is destined for greater things with a "can do" attitude like hers. I bet she learned it from her Grandmother!

    This is so wonderful indeed. We have had foster kids with CP and they always amazed me with their determination and willingness.
