When your baby is 1 week old, and she has her 1st MRI and the results aren’t what you thought you would ever hear, let alone something you never want to hear……Veronika has an injury to her brain from the bleed she had before she was born, and we believe that it will affect her movement down the left side of her body, and she will most likely never walk….

I guess at that point in you make a decision, one of two possible options i guess. You either think ‘oh well, if that’s how its gonna be, why bother,’ OR ‘Yes she will walk, and we will come back in when she does and say I TOLD YOU SO’.

All ready to set sail….

Sunday we had a family day with Down Syndrome Tasmania Southern Families, at SailAbility. What a fabulous day we all had. They took the two bigger boats out in the morning, while others went on the smaller 2 seater boats. Then we had a BBQ lunch, and after that we went out sailing again.
Veronika’s oldest brother Jordan heading out in the 2 seater boat.
I was amazed how well the day went. It’s fantastic that there is something that we can do as a group that suits all our members of Down Syndrome Tasmania and all their different abilities and across the age range.  We are all there to support and encourage each other, and we as a family are Blessed to have such a supportive group of people around us.
Thankyou to Down Syndrome Tasmania and SailAbility for a wonderful day….cant wait to sail again one day!
