Well, so far, my reality as a mother has been anything but typical.
Recently, though, I've wondered.... Could it be? Instead of running Chloe from doctor's appointment to therapy and holding her every second of the day.... Could it be that I could one day be running her from activity to activity and watch from the sidelines?
A few people have recently made me believe that might be the case.
I've mentioned before that Chloe dances in my dreams. Well I got an email recently from a fellow special needs mom letting me know that Dance Image Studios near my home is going to be starting a dance class just for kiddos like Chloe!....
I've heard it called dance therapy and adaptive dance. Call it whatever you want, I think Chloe will just love it! And did I mention it's free? That's right, they're not charging for the weekly class that will have one-on-one instructors for each of the students.
It starts in August and I will be counting down the days!
If the kids on Glee can do it, then so can Chloe!....
I also met some amazing soccer coaches recently. They told me about a special AYSO program called VIP. You can find out all about it HERE.
Chloe can't start until she's 4, but that's next year! When I was talking to the coaches about it, Chloe was with us in her wheelchair. They were explaining that someone would push her and she would be able to kick the ball herself. Just listening to us talking about it, Chloe started kicking and kicking. I'm pretty sure she'll be the star player! AND how cute will she look in the uniform!!!.....
I'm learning more and more that dreams really can come true! Chloe will dance. I'll be a soccer mom. Anything is possible!
