Riding the School Bus with a Wheelchair

Riding the School Bus with a Wheelchair

Summer has come and gone, and school has started. It's a time of getting our kids settled into a new routine, including getting to and from school in a safe manner.

Karina, my second-oldest daughter of five, was born two months early and from that moment on, has always shown that she does things on her time and with all eyes on her. Since the first moments home from the NICU, the only way we could get her to sleep was music.
