I never dreamed that I would be a single Mother, and a single Mother sitting in a chair, but an accident just a few months before little David was born changed my life forever. Thankfully David was born healthy and happy, but my marriage to his Dad Trent was done by then. Trent just could not deal with all that my life entailed now, so I was left with a son and to learn to face life in this chair.
Do I hate Trent? No of course not, he gave me the greatest gift, he gave me David! David has been my driving force. I had to stay in the hospital for several weeks after David was born so my Mom helped with him, but she brought him in everyday so I could spend time with him.
I have faced the fact that I might not walk again, but obviously I can have children LOL, but I am no longer married and I really do not think I want to get pregnant again, at least not for awhile perhaps if the Lord brings someone else in my life, I don't know. I would like to adopt one day.
I have heard of Lousiana Sandusky and Kendra kent who have adopted like close to a hundred kids between the two families, and I can not even begin to imagine. Kendra herself is in a wheelchair, I guess she was born with Spina Biffida, I am sure she would not lie in her own book LOL. I read both her book and Louisana's book and I think both families are amazing.
I am back home now have been for awhile and am glad to be back home. David and I have a one story two bedroom house, that some of the friends I have at church, who are into contracting have remodelled my home and allowed more handicap access and we are in the process of building a new room a home office, because I do a lot of freelance work from home. Thankfully the newspaper did not hire somenone new permanently when I was unable to work, so I still have that job, and yes I still go out on the street and do reporting. I certainly don't see any reason not to.
Well I am going to go David is crying I think its time to get him back to sleep.
