Sally and her dog Tucker often sat overlooking the water and watched her friends sailing their boats. The sight filld her with pain and anger, because Sally was sitting in a wheelchair. She would never be able to walk again, or ride a bike, or race her sailboat.
Sally had been sad and unhappy ever since the car accident that left her with a disability. She might have stayed that way, except for two things. At the doctor's office she met a man whose wheelchair was not a prison. And then Tucker found a little duck with a broken wing. This unlikely pair taught Sally that with help from others, a determination to succeed, and lots of hard work, miricles can happen.
