“If you can dream it you can do it.” This was spoken by Walt Disney and as I think about that quote I realize what he said is certainly true in every aspect of our lives. I have been blessed with some incredible parents who have supported me everything I do and they decided early on that I wouldn’t be treated differently because of my disability. That choice they made eighteen years ago has gotten me to where I am today. God has poured out so many blessing and opened so many doors to amazing opportunities it absolutely blows my mind! I can’t believe I will start college this fall and although I don’t know what the future holds for me I know that His plans for me are a million times better than my own!! No matter what our disability is it doesn’t define who we will become. I’m so inspired by the faith my parents have always had for me because they knew even at the age of three that I could do anything I set my mind to even though I have Cerebral Palsy. I pray that my life may be an encouragement to others that despite the curves life throws at us they don’t define who we are or who we’ll become later in life!
