              Thank you so much for sharing!!! I am the parent of a 3.5 year old and have found that each age has presented it's own challenges. I often wondered what things will be like as my as my daughter gets older and this article has helped address some of those questions. I hope your wife (and maybe you, smile) continue to share your experience as parents. Again, thank you for sharing!

                          I was injured after I raised my kids but I have grandkids now & they all have loved riding on my lap & I have found fun ways to play with them. I like the line from the son, in the article, "Dad I wish you could walk so I could beat you to a pulp!" to me that shows such a healthy relationship.

                            Thank you for this article! My fianc? is 10 years post injury and we are expecting our first child! I feel like I was reading our story. He, too, is paralyzed from mid chest down, and we were equally as shocked to learn we had conceived naturally! We are due in a few months and are brainstorming how to tackle some of the challenges we anticipate facing, such as lifting the baby from the crib, changing diapers, soothing the baby and feeding. I'd love to find more articles and resources for parenting.
