I know that it must hurt for Alex to have spinal bifida but he really seems like he is doing great and doesn't seem to have a very very severe case. Also due to the constant use of his crutches and dependance on his upper body strength to move and what not, when he gets older his upper body is going to have muscles on top of muscles! He's going to look like a superhero! Let him know that anytime he gets down about things. Hopefully one day he won't even need the crutches.
I find your comments so inspiring! Thanks for visiting our family blog, and sharing your thoughts.
