James’ son was born after he was paralyzed and his daughter was only three months old.

"My kids don’t know me any other way."

“My son used to stand on the back of my chair and we’d go cruising through the mall, he thought that was pretty awesome.” With his kids accustomed to his wheelchair, there wasn’t necessarily a big difference. “I could never play catch with my son which bothered me, but I coached his team.” These kinds of adjustments make James a creative quadriplegic dad. He adapted activities to allow him to be with his kids and he has wonderful relationships with both of his children.

Listen to his words:

There is no single activity required for being a parent, but a good dose of creativity will ensure that you can find a way to be involved.
