This is my story:

Hi, my name Adriel and I was born with Cerebral Palsy. This was mainly due to the lack of oxygen I received during the process of my mom giving birth. Doctors diagnose me within my birth year and told my parents I couldn’t walk and would need assistance for everything. I and my parents refuse to believe such lie so, they went to multiple places in the U.S. and Puerto Rico to improve my right side. The journey was not easy however, I manage to walk within 1 year and a half. My coordination thankfully has improve over the years with various specialize equipment that help me in that department. The journey wasn’t easy as people saw me with such limitations but I knew I could do everything I wanted to do and more. Today, my coordination is good, and people notice my disability when they pay close attention.

Even if I was half paralyzed completely I would find a way to do everything I want to do. Because limitations are those that are impose on ourselves and not what we can really do. Hope you have a wonderful day.
