Movin’ On Down

The best lil' partner out there

My Lil' Partner and I

When Kolette and I thought about having a baby in the years BC (Before Cole) I was filled with concern about what role I’d be able to play.  If you follow the blog at all you know that we’ve been able to do things I never thought possible.

Just this morning we worked our way through another obstacle.

Coleman loves to ride around on my lap.  The problem is each ride means someone (usually Kolette) has to lift Cole up on to my lap, and then help him off when we’re finished.  Well we haven’t figured out how to get him up on my lap yet (although Cole’s REALLY trying), but when it comes to getting him off my chair and on to the ground–check.

We’ve been working on this for a little while, and today it all clicked.  Check out the video below, and prepare to be amazed – for I am.  I am continually amazed at the way Cole, Ko and I figure out work-arounds. Videos like this are precious to me. I watch them over and over and every time my heart is filled with love.

For, it’s quite a thing to watch my lil’ partner work hard so I can be more involved in his big ol’ life



  1. Jason, ko, and Cole;

    It amazes me that you all work it out! Yay For Cole!

  2. Absolutely love it!!!!

  3. THANK YOU for your blog.

    Jason, I have followed your blog for a long time. I love your perspective on life. It always lifts me up. And, today, more than any other day I needed this. I was feeling that I did not have an drop of will power left in me to keep struggling with the challenges I have in my life right now and this video help me put it all in perspective.

    I need to find my “work around!”

  4. c’est fou ce que l’amour peut nous aider à faire ! le vrai handicap, c’est se dire “je ne peux pas le faire”, rester dans la vie, c’est se demander “comment je peux le faire ?” !

  5. Your story is awe inspiring! My father is a paraplegic and actually raised my sister and I mostly by his self. I was told I suffered from 2 dislocated arms when I was little because of how he would pick me up without falling out of the chair or tipping over… He now has an electric chair because he is 70 years old and has bad shoulders and his circulation in his feet are horrid. He had gotten his pilots license and owned his own plane for many years. I believe when you set your mind to something and you give it to God, he helps you find the way! I am so happy for you and your family, and so glad you are able to touch so many people’s lives and give them hope, when they might not be able to find it within themselves!
