    Great article. Life goes on after SCI and it is what we make of it. Your wife is a good writer.

      Great Article. Lots of familiar terrain there. My oldest son was 6 months when I was hurt. He's now 10 and his brother is 4. There is no glib one-liner to encapsulate the experience but harder fought battles have sweeter victories for the effort. There are things you miss out on but equally sweet moments that you share because of the chair that somehow even it out. As a C7 diapers were sometimes exciting but you figure it all out. Additionally a superhuman level of patience gleaned from the years in the chair have also served me well. Happy parenting.

          Great article! Sounds really familiar...we currently have a 3 Yr old and a 1 Yr old. I'm paralyzed from chest down. I was a stay at home dad with our first starting from when she was about 6 months. Now I'm a stay at home dad with both kids but only 2 days a week. So many questions going into parenthood in a wheelchair...and you pretty much just figure it out as you go. Sure, you miss out on so much that able bodied parents get to do, but geez you get to take part in so much too. Best thing in the world!
