Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

Lonely Little Bird

5 Nov 2013There is this beautiful little story about this girl with Cerebral Palsy who wrote into to a radio station she listens to, in China, and shared that she had been depressed for over two years.

The radio station soon learnt that she typed her letter on a laptop using her nose and chin.

Little Bird was then visited by a rehab unit who designed an exercise program to help her be able to look after herself and now she can use a spoon to feed herself.

This amazing Little Bird has such strength and a will to survive and she is probably a joy to be around as her determination has shown her and those around her that many things are possible.

You can see more of her story here: http://www.febc.org/lonely-little-bird-the-story-of-a-disabled-girl-the-help-of-an-olympic-swim-coach

It is great to see that you are no longer so lonely and that you are now calling yourself The Sunshine Girl!
