    Hi! New Member Looking for Support!

    I know it's been a while since you have posted here, but I am also a caregiver to my 18 yr. old daughter. I would like to get some feedback from you sometime. pjb

    Welcome!

    I started your own thread pjb1952 because .... you won't get much response in the sticky thread where you originally posted!

    There are a number of parents here who have kids with a sci .... if you have any questions or just need a place to unload you've found the right spot. Once again welcome to CC and I wish you the best!!

    Seeing your child in a wheelchair is one of the hardest things a parent can experience. The sadness never goes away. Life moves forward and the laughter returns, but just below the surface the heartbreak lingers. All you can do is help your daughter thru this life-changing event, be supportive, listen when you need to, don't lecture, let her know that she can count on you - it's a difficult situation, but you will get thru it. You will be amazed at just how strong you really are! Best of luck to you!

    My son Jordan is T4, Asia A, he was injured on September 28th, 2002 from a gsw. He was 17 @ the time.
    My mouth is like a magician's hat, never know what might come out of it.
