Depending on where you live and type of weather you have had to endure during this holiday break, you may have been stuck inside quite a bit. This story is about our local trolley system and how we learned it was an easy way to have fun with Ben included. If you don't live in Charlotte, I am sure there is something new in your area to try. Check out their website or call about special accommodations for wheelchairs and other equipment necessary for your child to travel. Usually people are surprisingly helpful. http://www.charlotteparent.com/CLT/Ride-the-Trolley-to-Uptown-Charlotte/ Happy New Year!
These stories describe our journey with Ben, our oldest son. Ben is a sweet and energetic redhead, born with a rare genetic mutation. My husband, Ryan, and I try to keep up with Ben and his two younger brothers. I intend to shed insight into raising a child with disabilities and pass on the wisdom we’ve earned over the past two decades.
