Shoe-less Wonder!

Pin It
If you have ever met Rory you will quickly learn that there is something amazingly special about her.  It's not just the fact that she had a 6 cm left shoe lift and has Congenital Femoral Deficiency, that actually has nothing to do with how unbelievable she is. It's the fact that this little girl is so astounding is because she has defied all of the odds and restraints many of the doctors  have put on her!
Running Wild!

When we first found out about her leg, we learned we would have to amputate, which we obviously did not do!   We were told that she may talk a lot longer for her to walk because of the discrepancy but she was walking perfectly at 11 months.  She now walks with and without her special shoes. However, lately she prefers walking without shoes.

 It is not that her shoes are hard to walk in or that she hates wearing them, it is just that it is becoming so intensely hot outside that her cute little socked feet begin to sweat and become so wet and uncomfortable.  She wants nothing to do with them, and will take off her shoes anywhere!   On our recent trip she took them off at a restaurant, at the wedding reception, and last night she took them off when we were feeding the ducks. 

It's extremely difficult to tell a toddler anything, let alone that she needs to wear her shoes.  And honestly, I really don't know what we are going to do for the rest of the summer!  But right now, Rory walks great without her shoes, she finds ways to get around.  Although I think most everything she does is incredible, the way she gets around without her shoes is truly remarkable.  She's such a special girl, she has really defied all odds and I couldn’t be prouder!
