One Foot in Front of the Other

For those of you who have been following Charlie's blog, you know that he has Cerebral Palsy related to stroke. He can't walk or crawl.  Last fall he began bearing weight through his legs and feet with the help of orthotic braces and the support of an adult. But just recently, he began shifting his body weight onto one foot and picking up his other foot to mimic a stepping action. This week, he completed the action and was even able to get his stroke affected leg to participate. Here he is putting one foot in front of the other and bearing weight through his hips, legs, knees and feet. His mother, Sarah, is holding him by his pelvis to keep him upright - the rest is all him!


  1. How exciting! Thanks for sharing the video.

  2. He really is an extraordinary child!!

    All my love,
