A girl who has a dream to be able walk!

I am writing this letter to myself to be able to go back and read it in several years.  The fact is that I have Cerebral Palsy, but that does not define what I want out of life.  I am not the first person with a disability to make a life change.  To be a girl with a disability but who can make a difference in the world for those that wish they could This is my dream, that I will get up from my wheelchair and walk on my own one day.  From an early age, I watched my two sisters walk around and have a normal life, so for me to be able to walk and have a normal life like my sisters is a dream of mine.  If I can work on my legs to make them stronger,can walk on my own and don't have to ask for help. When I go out with family and friends I have to use my wheelchair and I need help with some things, like eating, brushing my teeth, and doing my hair.

At 34 years old,I have done a lot of things in my life. I have written a book aboutmy life living with a disability. I went to lots of places all over the world.  I am a very lucky girl to have done a lot of stuff in my life and I am so grateful to have a lovely family. But I feel like there is something missing in my life. I don't know why I feel this way, but the only thing that I can think of is having two legs to walk down the road as something that Id have in my life. The fact is that I can get it if I work on my body and make my legs strong enough for me to get up from my wheelchair.
