Yesterday Whitney performed with the CHAMPIONS, a cheerleading group for children with special needs. Nine years ago, I would have never thought that this was possible. After the performance, I couldn't help but stand up, cheer and cry. This was only a parent show, but I was so proud of her. Next week will be the first competition in her full uniform. I was so amazed that she made it through 2 1/2 hours of waiting, practicing and performing in a room with over 500 people and loud music. With her sensory issues, this was not easy, but she did great. She has come so far! Here is our favorite video clip. Hope it makes you all smile.
