This is My Strong Arm

That is what Brandon said when I asked why he was fishing with his left hand and why he was poking the fire with his left hand. There was a time when Brandon couldn't open his left hand. He has practiced with his left hand so much that he doesn't have a weak arm anymore! He suffered a right posterior cerebral stroke when he was 6 months old; he is 9 now.
