Growing up I assumed that I would never marry and would put my focus on being an awesome aunt. My mom always said that I would, "end up with the nicest guy of all." Here I am at the age of 37, married to the love of my life. I feel blessed that he was able to look past my spastic arms and legs and see the happy, positive woman that I was/am. He always said he liked that I didn't dwell on what I couldn't do.
As I receive help organizing and editing my book, I can't help but be grateful for my entire life. Yes, there were many challenging days; but the days being surrounded by good people, like my husband make up for it. If I had to choose between a new diagnosis and meeting Steve I wouldn't have to think about it. I would choose Steve and the wonderful life he has given me. My physical capabilities are just a small part of who I am and as I've said before, I like me! And I love my husband!!
