I *love* this blog post!
It is a quick read and I encourage everyone to read it - especially those parenting a child with a special need.
It is only natural to get excited when Bryan takes a few independent steps.....but I have always felt it was a little bittersweet when the kids and I get so excited and cheer him on.
On one hand - it is EXCITING and Bryan is EXCITED to be walking....
On the other hand is it really "everything"?! What if he never walks independently? And we have put so much emphasis on walking.....
Does it mean Bryan has less value? Does it mean we love Bryan any less?
We LOVE Bryan just the way God CREATED HIM!
