Drum Roll Please... Cecily walks!
We started Cecily's Closet with the simple premise of spreading stories of hope and love to children with special needs in San Diego. We were not trying to do much - just inspire a few families and hopefully pay forward the kindness shared with us by our family and friends. We hated searching on the Internet and finding negative stories. We hated living with limits being placed on Cecily. Instead we decided to follow our own path and we agreed as a family to take the good with the bad and to celebrate the little wins along the way. We refused to accept the reality that was put forth by Cecily's medical team. We refused to have our hopes dashed when we were told that Cecily may never talk or walk or have the quality of life you dream about for your children. So instead, we took the words of the Doctors... "we don't have a crystal ball" and turned the tables. No one has a crystal ball but everyone is entitled to hope! We will never stop believing in our angel. Today Cecily proves the impossible possible - yet again. Captured on video by a dear Mom at Cecily's pre-school - her first steps. Go Cecily Go! Seeing is believing!
We are so very proud of Cecily and the amount of work she has put forth to make this possible. She has a long way to go but this fills us with hope! We hope by sharing this very personal video that we celebrate ALL children with disabilities and the amazing blessings they bring to us. We hope it inspires you the way she inspires us! Never stop believing!

I am thrilled for Cecily and her family! What an inspiration you all are. You are absolutely right...there are no crystal balls that show the future--because the future is not yet written! You are writing your own, filled with hope and possibility. Good on ya!
