Meet Maya - an adorable 4 year old with Cerebral Palsy . . . and an indomitable spirit! :love: :love: :love:

First some background on Maya - and of her will to walk, without assistance from her walker: (turn up those speakers)

And now (get your hankies ready) here are her first unaided steps after recovery from SDR surgery! :woot: :jumping: :applause: :cloud9:

Maya's doctor had said that she'd be able to walk "someday" but not without grueling, daily physical therapy.
But Maya didn't listen! :No way: This is her just a smidge past seven weeks postsurgery. :woot:

I can deeply appreciate Maya's drive to learn to walk unaided. I don't make a big deal out of it but I lost the ability to walk without a walker after a spinal surgery five years ago. I have no feeling on one side below the waist and my brain doesn't know my leg is still there. I am the first one to stand and cheer for Maya and hope she continues to do so well. You go girl!
