Donna had posted about the new film Dolphin Tale coming out... and it made me curious. How do your children and their friends view your amputation? My children are 8 and 6 so don't know me any other way. They even play with my old leg parts pretending they have "fake legs". Their friends casually ask me about it and I let them feel it etc. I think it's healthy for my children and their friends to grow up seeing different people with different abilities.
I just thought I'd pass this along...having an artificial foot as you know can pose a challenge when buying shoes. I have to have straps on my sandles, prefer rubber soles... I discovered Zappos.com and LOVE them. If I order shoes, I get them the next day! Shipping is free both ways, so if you are not sure about the size, you can order 2 and send one back. They have thousands of shoes to choose from, so you WILL find shoes that work. ...and their customer service is awesome! Happy Shoe Shopping!
