Dale at Home

I spent the afternoon with Dale last week at his home in Walsenburg. He has Spina Bifida a congenital condition caused by the incomplete closing of the spinal cord during fetal development, which causes nerve damage and subsequent disability to varying extents. Dale seems to have a similar level of Spina Bifida to that my sister, Jackie had. His independence is important with the usual stuff like having a job, his own house and car meaning a lot.
