    I imagine that you can help a lot of people! 

    When my girls were growing up I was able bodied but I am now a gramps to a 2 year old boy and a 5 week old girl. My daughter and I were talking about disability and caring for a baby and how when you are in a wheelchair you cope. 

    My grandson learnt very quickly to sit on my lap and lean back so he was safe as I pushed. He thinks nothing of me not walking, it's just how gramps is and of course my wheelchair is so much fun. 

    Kids learn quick, when I go to get up he see's and pushes the wheelchair in close saying "you okay GaGa" yes I know, like the singer lol
    Please share your link and I'm sure many people will benefit from it.
