Pop Star Pink....

....is the color of Rubea's new power chair!! This thing is AMAZING!! I just know it is going to be great for her!! She will finally have some independence!! We are over the moon excited for her!!!!! Pretty fancy don't you think???



I just can not believe the technology of this awesome ride! She can put the seat all the way to the floor enabling her to join in *circle time* at school with her friends.
Or, she can raise it up to be at eye level with her friends and siblings! This allows her to be at their level while going down the hall or taking a walk.




Check out her name on the back of the seat!! :-)




She can lay back and take a nap!! Of course she probably never would!!


I love that she is at the same height as Ethan when she raises the seat up!!



She is learning how to use the buttons. She is really catching on and learning how to get around in her environment. She LOVES the independence. Until now she completely relied on us to move her, position her, etc. She has a manual chair, but is not strong enough to move herself around. I fear in a month that she will be able to run from us!! lol



This is her first venture out of the house with it. It goes fast enough that the kids have to run to keep up with her. In the house we slow it ALL THE WAY DOWN!! She has had such a great time outside *running* with the kids!! We are truly blessed to have such great insurance so our kids can have the equipment they need to be successful at being independent!!!

I love the new pink ride! Thank you for the kind words! I know, this new process is crazy and a little stressful! Now we wait for our I800 approval which can takes weeks- we have been praying for our officer and that this approval comes quickly! Love, Kim
