Meghan King Shared a Huge Update on Hart’s Journey: “BRB, Getting a Tissue”
The RHOC alum opened up about how her “shining star” son is doing after his cerebral palsy diagnosis.
Go, Hart, go! The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Meghan King has an exciting update about her son Hart’s forward progress, following his October 2020 cerebral palsy diagnosis.
On November 8, Meghan shared a series of adorable photos and videos on Instagram showing the 4-year-old son she shares with ex-husband Jim Edmonds getting off the school bus, enjoying playground time, and even wearing a “Dr. Hart” costume.
In her caption, the mom of three explained that this year Hart started riding a bus to a school with an “all-ability classroom” four afternoons a week, and he’s already made a good friend.
“This year Hart’s confidence has exploded. He’s more social, amiable, calmer, willing to try new things, and he’s also been able to witness his abilities compared to others with different struggles and see that he’s better at doing some things,” Meghan wrote, in part. “The child I see this year compared to last is a shining star.”
Though she said she “braced [herself]” for recent parent-teacher conferences, the RHOC alum was pleased to “find a myriad of compliments” from both Hart’s private school and the public school he attends. “All his hard work, therapies, and tears are paying off now, and it moves me beyond comprehension,” Meghan added.
Recalling that she just hoped to get Hart to stand when he was a baby, the “special needs mom” gushed that “now he’s accidentally inspired all of us,” before continuing, “BRB, getting a tissue and kissing my miracle.”
Fellow RHOC alums Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Peggy Tanous were among those to offer messages of support in the comments section. “You’re amazing, your kids are so lucky to have you,” Braunwyn wrote, while Peggy said, “He’s so precious,” adding a red heart emoji.
When first publicly sharing Hart’s health journey in October 2020, Meghan opened up about how she was feeling in another Instagram caption. “I felt called to share his experience and my experience with you all in order to hopefully normalize this diagnosis. Something I’ve learned is that a diagnosis isn’t limiting, people are,” she wrote, in part, at the time. “I am choosing to celebrate what makes Hart different and raise my children with the encouragement to live their lives out loud and to never let their differences limit or define them.”
