A Mother’s Joy

Now, it all makes sense. Hudson has never enjoyed going to parks. I’m always observing him. His therapist, too. It’s just hard for him, overwhelming and scary. (I’m crying while I’m typing this.) He’s never really enjoyed going to parks….until today.

Today we were able to attend the Grand Re-Opening of Shane’s Inspiration Playground.

But once again, Hudson didn’t want to ”go to the park.” But as we pulled up, I told him ‘Hudson, THIS park is for you!! At THIS park you can use your walker everywhere!!’ He got sooo excited and said ‘Hurry mom! Let’s go! Hurry! Let’s get out of the car!!’

Today was the longest we stayed at the park because he was so busy playing on the equipment independently and with no fear.

I could tell he felt SAFE. He was able to be a 4 year old!! I was able to stand, watch, and relax as he played…for the very rst time!!

“A world where children with disabilities can play with able-bodied children, no one is excluded and all children can play together.”

Little did we know that, “We are going to the park,” would turn into an amazing rst time experience and introduce us to a whole new world that unfortunately Hudson has been missing. It was an hour away, but incredibly worth it.

From the bottom of my heart, I’m so beyond thankful for Inclusion Matters by Shane’s Inspiration! We need more parks like this. I now look at most parks as parks that exclude. No more exclusion!! He denitely left a happy boy!! Hudson will be back!!

THANK YOU FOR INCLUDING US!
Melissa, Hudson’s Mom
