Our World Is Different
Growing with the Cook Family
Many don't understand what a family who has a member with special needs has to endure. Especially when it starts at birth. Whether it be physical or mental the challenge is overwhelming and the family has to adapt physically, mentally, spiritually and financially. It is not easy because we as a family can't walk away nor do we want to and we wonder what the future holds for our loved one when we are gone, especially when our loved one is fully dependent on another for survival. We as the family face the struggles with these thoughts and realities and live with the challenges daily.
Robert W. Cook (Bobby) our son has endured multiple surgeries and has had over 20 near death incidents due to medical conditions. He also has to go to therapies and also need medical equipment and daily supplies. They are things a regular family will never face. But through it all, we have been humbled and have grown in more ways than one.
Here are some pictures being shared of our world.
