I Would Really Love to Win This Caboose Trailer Bike for our Son!

You might have read the previous post. You might have found out that our son had 5 strokes before the age of three. You might have found out that he has weakness (hemi-paresis) on the right side of his body. These things all add up to the fact that it is very difficult for him to ride a bicycle. He has a hard time getting his right foot and leg to work right, and it's very difficult for him to steer or use the brakes correctly with his right hand.

When I saw this Caboose Trailer Bike being given away on the 5 Minutes For Mom blog, I thought "Oh, my goodness! This would be awesome for C!" I knew I had to enter. So here I am posting about it, and I will head back over to the blog and enter to win. Keep your fingers crossed for us!!

Thanks for checking out the blog Trisha. We haven't gone bike riding because our son isn't able to ride. But hopefully that will change soon, and we will all even be able to GET bikes!

Thanks Beki. I think if I am chosen as one of the 15 finalists, there will be a link to vote, and I will post it on Etsy. I'm crossing my fingers and praying too!
