In the aftermath of the accident that left him paralyzed, Christopher Reeve and his family found a new way to love that didn't rely on physical affection, two of his grown children said Tuesday.
"We quickly learned that being a family isn't about the physical connections," Alexandra Reeve, 23, said on Good Morning America. "It's not about the hugs. For us, it wasn't about the physical activities, even though they'd been so much a part of our family life for so long. We realized that a family can still be there for one another just by voices, by loving one another and by sharing moments together. And physical ability isn't a requisite for that."
