I have two children; both of my children were born after my accident.  And it was something I would’ve never given myself permission; there was a lot of guilt when I was pregnant.  I felt like I could barely take care of myself, how I was going to take care of another child?  How wrong I was; it does work out.  I did need a lot of help, but they are now 21 and 18, both in college, both seem to be moving forward with life.  They jury is still out on how functional they’ll be, but they’re on the right path.  It’s been an absolute joy, something I wouldn’t have traded for the world, and something I’m so glad was a part of my life.
