What I’m reading now!


A few months ago, I made a new friend named Kyle, who has cerebral palsy, who authored a book titled; In A Split Second Living in the World with Cerebral Palsy. A bestseller list has already been compiled for this book. I am proud of Kyle and his positive attitude toward living with cerebral palsy. I am currently reading this book. Be sure to check my blog for my review of this book!

What is it like to grow up with cerebral palsy? How does a child cope throughout life with a disability? What obstacles will they be faced with while trying to reach their goals and achieve their dreams?

Kyle Scott was diagnosed with a mystery classification of cerebral palsy at the age of sixteen months, but that hasn’t stopped him from living his life to the fullest. Surrounded by the best family and friends one could ask for, he has strived for and achieved far more than doctors, specialists, and therapists claimed he would, ultimately proving that anything is possible.

This is a story about how an entire life can change in a split second, but it’s what you do with your life from that day forward that creates a life worth living.

“The only disability in life is a bad attitude!”
-Scott Hamilton

“Be Yourself; Everyone Else is Already Taken!”
-Anonymous
