Mia had a stroke at birth. Bearing weight on righty has long been a goal to develop strength and dexterity. Mia is pretty brave, and she had to use both hands to climb safely. In this photo, Mia was five years old and we were visiting family in Boulder, Colorado.
Mia had a stroke around the time she was born. Here, she is using her left thumb to take a picture with the camera upside down. She was seven years old at the time of this picture in Zion National Park. We learned this technique from other families with a kid who has right hemiplegia, like Mia.
