Amazing Awaits........

That's the motto of the US Paralympic team and pretty much sums up how we're feeling right now. Tomorrow morning we'll fly to Washington DC to meet the rest of the US Paralympic team and staff and then fly to Rio de Janeiro to compete in the Short Course World Championships. 264 athletes from 31 countries and my baby girl is one of them!!! This picture was taken 2 years ago when she first qualified to swim in a Paralympic sanctioned meet. She was SO proud to pose in front of the sign! Now she's a member of this special team representing our country! To say I am proud is an understatement!

Please keep us in good thoughts and we travel to South America to attend this competition.

Amazing Awaits!
