Hello everybody! I hope you guys are well. I received my Parents Magazine the other day and I would like to give them a BIG SHOUT OUT and a huge heartfelt hug to every single person who had a say in whom to feature on the cover. The cover model is 3-year-old Emily Keicher (she was originally supposed to be featured in a column piece) and she has a condition called spina bifida. I did a double take when I saw the cover for a couple of reasons. I saw Emily’s beautiful face and then I saw her gold walker. I’ve never seen that before printed on the cover of a magazine, a child with a disability. You know that rarely happens. Then I saw her pretty, pink ruffled skirt, her infectious smile and the pure happiness radiating from her eyes. She made me smile so big and I thought, “She’s absolutely gorgeous.” I had to share this with you and the magazine is on newsstands now so pick one up and learn as much as you can about Emily’s life with spina bifida.
Parents Magazine I applaud you as well as Emily and her mom, Elizabeth.
Take good care all.
Until next time…
