Exposing Mia to events and gatherings where she and us can be surrounded by other amputees, in wheelchairs and wearing prosthesis, is something we feel is very important. It is important that we show her that she isn’t alone. That there are other children and adults who are just like her. Luckily the Ossur Mobility Clinic this year was close by at Gold Coast. It was really wonderful meeting other children, families and adults and participating in many physical activities.
Community and support is essential everyone. We all need a sense of belonging. Being part of amputee groups is where we can not only learn new skills, find information about prosthesis but also connect with people for emotional support for her and us.
