Finding Strength in Your Tribe: The Power of Unwavering Support


Life is a journey filled with ups and downs, unexpected challenges, and moments of triumph. It is during these times that the importance of having a strong support system becomes evident. Our tribe, comprised of both blood relatives and chosen family, has been an invaluable source of love, strength, and unwavering support. In this blog post, we will explore the significance of having a tribe that lifts and supports you, sees beyond disabilities, and embraces you for who you are. Join us as we celebrate the power of connection and the profound impact it has on our lives.

Family: The Foundation of Our Tribe:

For many, family forms the bedrock of their support system. Our parents, grandparents, siblings, and extended family have been there through thick and thin. They have embraced our journey, seeing beyond our disabilities and focusing on the love and connection that bind us. Their unconditional support has created a safe space where we can be ourselves, where laughter and love flow freely, and where we find solace in times of need.

Chosen Family: Bonds that Transcend Blood:

In addition to our blood relatives, our tribe also includes chosen family members. These are the individuals who have become an integral part of our lives, offering love, support, and friendship that knows no bounds. Paul's parents, brothers, and sister-in-laws have embraced us with open arms, treating us as their own.

The Power of True Friendship:

Among our chosen family, one person stands out—the best friend who has become my rock, confidant, and source of laughter. Through thick and thin, she has been by our side, offering a listening ear, providing a shoulder to lean on, and lifting us up with her unwavering support. True friendship knows no boundaries, and she has shown us the incredible strength that comes from having someone who loves you unconditionally. Her willingness to adapt and find ways to include us, like figuring out how to throw us on a four-wheeler for trail riding, demonstrates their unwavering commitment to our happiness and well-being.

The Power Couple: Strengthening Our Relationship:

While the support of our tribe is paramount, we recognize that our relationship with each other is the foundation of it all. Paul and I continuously strive to improve and strengthen our bond, recognizing that a strong partnership enhances every aspect of our lives. We communicate openly, celebrate each other's successes, and navigate challenges together, always reminding ourselves that we are in this journey as a team.


The Importance of Finding Your Tribe:

In a world that can sometimes feel isolating, finding your tribe becomes essential. Surrounding yourself with people who lift you up, support you, and love you unconditionally can make all the difference. These are the individuals who see beyond disabilities, who embrace your journey, and who are there to celebrate the victories and offer comfort during the defeats. They remind you that you are never alone and that together, you can conquer anything.



In life, it is the love, support, and connection we share with others that truly enriches our journey. Our tribe, consisting of both blood relatives and chosen family, has been the backbone of our strength and resilience. They have shown us that disabilities do not define us and that love knows no bounds. As we celebrate the power of our tribe, we encourage you to find yours—surround yourself with those who lift you up, love them hard, and together, conquer the world.


Remember, your tribe is out there, waiting to embrace you with open arms. Seek connection, nurture relationships, and cherish the bonds that form your support system. For it is through the power of your tribe that you will find the strength to navigate life's challenges and celebrate its beautiful moments.
