I don't know how her little body continues to function the way it does. She needs to take supporting medications to counteract some of the side effects. But she gets up every day and keeps on going regardless of what life throws in her path. I think that is a message we should all take to heart.
Livy, like many kids with special needs, has a certain purity and innocence about her. It is as if she is insulated from all that goes on in the world. She seems to have a never ending sense of childlike optimism that is infectious. How many kids are this happy to be in a doctor's office? Being around her makes me believe that anything is possible. And believing is half the battle.
