Liberty Swing

Today we went and picked up the key for the Liberty Swing, and also had a lesson on how to use it. It is a swing designed especially for wheelchairs - you wheel the wheelchair straight onto it and lock it down and then swing it.

Noah's special school had it installed at the beginning of this year. I believe that it cost around $30,000! Now that we have a key we are able to take Noah there anytime we want. It will be great as there is a nice little park across the road from the school (both are a 3 min walk from our house) so as the nights are warming up and getting longer we will walk up there and Noah can have a swing, while the boys play at the park.

Harri was very excited as there is also a little seat the he can sit on to have a swing.


  1. that is awesome! does noah like it? are their other kids at school who use it?

  2. Noah does like it - you can see his eyes get really big when he is really alert and awake. The kids all use it at school and any family can get a key (you just pay a bond for the key). I only just found out you can get a key or I would have done it sooner. Another parent told me.

  3. wow what a great swing, I bet Noah has a blast on it. Really great that it is so close to your house and you can use it anytime.


We are so grateful for everyone's love and support, and appreciate your comments xoxo
