I Learned How to Walk at 7 Years Old

And I’m grateful to the people who made it possible.

I spent the first six years of my life crawling around on my knees.

1. I was given a pair of splints to support my feet.

The pair of splints I wear today, with straps on them.

2. I did physical therapy.

3. I practiced walking as often as possible.
