Our daughter, Wryliegh, was born March 1, 1994. Suffering a stroke one week before birth left her totally paralyzed requiring a life supporting ventilator and 24-hour care. The doctors told us that her life span would be perhaps two to three years and we were given the option of pulling her life support. In just a few months, Wryliegh will be 13 years old! Every day has been a miracle in progress. Our family couldn’t have made it this far without the love and support of our friends and family.
We look back at our year of accomplishments and our family has many people to be thankful for! We would like to thank the team at Outdoor School for helping Wryliegh experience many outdoor activities never before known to her. With the coordinated efforts of many people at the MESD and the Friends of Outdoor School, Wryliegh was able to participate in Outdoor School despite her many medical challenges. We had full confidence in the team and felt secure sending her off to explore new and exciting things.
For almost 13 years now, Wryliegh has been a trailblazer. She has continued to defy all odds because of the efforts and support of many people. Thank you all so much for making yet another groundbreaking collaboration that enabled Wryliegh educational inclusion at Camp Sandy River.
