There is a park near our home, that was made to be accessible for children with handicaps. Before having Gavin I thought it was a great park and that it was a wonderful thing to have. Now that I have Gavin, it means even more to me! There are so many places that are difficult to go to when you have a child in a stroller or wheelchair. It's heartwarming to know that there are people out there trying to make fun a little bit easier for those who can't always share in the fun.
All of our boys enjoy going here. I'm not sure how much Gavin gets out of the experience, but I love knowing that it's there for him. Plus, it provides stimulation for him, which is a great thing. During the flu season we are stuck inside so much, that he gets a little frightened being out in the world. It's so important to get him out during the summer months, to get him used to things and to stimulate his brain and senses.
Isn't this a wonderful place to do this?! There should be more places like this! Do you know of any other resources like this?
