Evan now officially has his motorized chair. It is a really long process to get a chair and we are probably not going to be getting "his" chair until about December or January, so Justin and I decided to bite the bullet and rent him a chair in the meantime so he has mobility now. Every child should have the right to move and the right to independence and we are just tickled that we are able to give him this gift.

My favorite thing that he is doing in his chair is "running" away from me while laughing hysterically. He loves his new independence and we are blessed to appreciate what that independence means to him. How wonderful that I have to chase him down the isles at Walmart.

Great !! It really is something to see the joy in the faces of the young ones that finally have some independence.
Now if you were to put a leash on him it could be a tow rope for you !!

Hooray for Evan! I can just picture him taking off in the store with a smile on his face. :)
