Local parents Mom Kayla says: "He never gives up and overcomes every challenge. Jace suffered from a stroke in utero, causing him to have hemiplegia (weakness) of his right side. Over the past 3 years, we've had many therapies and many doctor appointments. At 6 months old he was behind on milestones. But with hard work from us, his family, and his therapists and doctors, he overcame the challenges that his hemiplegia causes. He always has the biggest smile on his face and touches the lives of everyone he meets. And I know with his constant determination and his strong-willed mind that he will continue to surpass the obstacles in his way." T here's no denying it… The Hudson Valley is chock-full of Incredible Kids and parents just waiting for the opportunity to brag about them! We asked parents to tell us how their kids show bravery for a chance to be featured in this issue and the opportunity to be on a future cover of Hudson Valley Parent. Our staff was overwhelmed with all the great submissions. We read stories about kids who are not afraid to try new things and kids who never give up no matter what sort of obstacles are placed in front of them. Choosing our four finalists was not easy. Alas, after much deliberation, Hudson Valley Parent is proud to announce our fifth group of Incredible Kids! We'd also like to extend a hearty thank you to our Incredible Kids sponsor, Children's Medical Group. Finalist: Jace, 3 of Ulster Mom Christine says: "Even though she has inattentive ADHD and struggles in school with spelling, math and reading, she worked so hard all throughout elementary school and at her 5th grade moving up ceremony she received an award. Lyla is now on reading level and is very proud of herself!" Finalist: Lyla (left), 11 of Poughkeepsie 24 Hudson Valley Parent n November 2018
