A Little Girl's Push to Dance

A Little Girl's Push to Dance

When you become pregnant, you immediately start to gather hopes and dreams for your child's future. Karina, my second-oldest daughter of five, was born two months early and from that moment on, has always shown that she does things on her time and with all eyes on her. Since the first moments home from the NICU, the only way we could get her to sleep was music. Her eyes would grow wide and you could see that every beat, rhythm, and word was being taken into her tiny little brain. Music quickly became her escape, her way to be free in her body however the music took her.

In doing my research for this article, I've learned that my experiences with temperature are common among amputees.

Exploring the Grand Canyon by Handbike

Exploring the Grand Canyon by Handbike

I was hooked from just the subject line: "The bike trip to miss." After all, it's not every day that you're offered to go on a five-day fully guided bike trip exploring the trails of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Tim McGrough, the program director for Telluride Adaptive Sports Program (TASP) organized this trip with Western Spirit, a Moab-based bicycle tour company to take seven select off-road handcyclists on their first-ever guided off-road handcycle tour.
