member of the month:
The September Member of the Month is 4-year-old Mylahanna B. from Milwaukee! Mylahanna loves to sing, dance, do arts and crafts, play outside and is starting school for the very first time this month. She has never been in daycare, or any type of school because mom has been teaching her from home. Mylahanna is very outgoing and doesn’t let Spina Bifida define her. An accomplishment of hers is walking. Mom was told Mylahanna would never walk and today she can "run"! Mylahanna had been the only child for four years and welcomed a baby sister earlier this year in April. She is loving being a big sister! She loves to hold her, feed her, talk to her, and sing to her. Good luck at school this year Mylahanna!
