This photo came up on Facebook memories today. I remember it well. My daughter went camping on Assateague Island with her Girl Scout troop. She’s in the water behind Chance. The park ranger was nice enough to bring us a special beach wheelchair for him. It was so comfortable, he promptly fell asleep.
Normally, I would have had Chance facing the water, but he hates wind. So it worked out well for my picture because it shows a tiny bit of the heartbreak that special needs parents go through on a daily basis. Chance should be out there in the water playing with his younger sister, but he can’t. He should be enjoying a day at the beach, but he can’t. And his legs look so thin. It’s heartbreaking. 💔
