    Hi @Shollywood22
    It's really good to virtually meet you. Receiving a diagnosis can bring up a mix of emotions and it is very important for you to remember that there is no set way that you should feel.  
    Your daughter should be under the care of a paediatrician and should be given access to regular physiotherapy this will help with her mobility and coordination. We have lots of information about Cerebral Palsy and services such as Navigate and Parents Connect for families that have received a recent diagnosis.  
    I live with CP too and I'd be more than happy to talk to you over email about your thoughts and concerns. Please remember that you are not alone in your journey.
