  • My son's orthopedic doctor told us not to listen to anyone who tells us that he won't be able to walk. No one can tell us that because anything can happen. All you can do is keep up with therapy and don't give up.

  • Every child walks and does everything at his or her own speed, there is no set time for it to happen, there are test that the chides doc can do to see if there is bone, muscle or nerve problems. And even if the doc does the test I would still get a second opinion, They told me my son would never walk at all due to nerve damage from when he was born, well they were wrong because my son wont stand still but he wont walk for a long time.... I recommend looking into some of the test and see what they say.... also if you always pick them up and carry them they wont want to walk because you take them every were they need to go...
