Re "New set of wheels would add mobility -- and wind in her hair" (Book of Dreams, Nov. 21, 2012): I submitted a request to Book of Dreams for a special-needs bicycle for Abigail Franklin, who has cerebral palsy, and I just wanted to give an update.
Abby got the bike about a month ago and she is still thanking me and asking if she can keep the bike. I let her know it is her bike. She rides it almost every day and it is so much easier for her to peddle than her old bike. It has also helped keep her legs limber so that it is easier for her to walk.
I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation to everyone involved in making this a dream come true for Abby.
