Christine’s Story From King County, Washington, U.S.A.
In Christine’s Words
The most encouragement I got was from my father. He gave me the character I have now. I never give in no matter what. I don’t give in. My father used to always say to me, ‘you are normal, you are not disabled at all, and you’re not interested in the possibilities of defeat because they don’t exist.’ I will never forget that because they told me that I wouldn’t be able to ride a bike, drive a car, swim, dance, and I set out to do all of that, and I did it all.
