Message From Micaela, 3-year-old Amputee:  Choose To Dance!

When POA client Micaela returned to Peru after being fit with her new prosthesis, her mom enrolled her in a ballet dance class. Never once did she hesitate to participate in all the activities the other kids did.  Micaela proudly displayed her  *Hello Kitty* design prosthetic leg when she danced in her first ballet recital!  Bravo, sweet girl!   #choosetodance #noboundaries #POAproud
