Two Miracles Meet!

Two Miracles Meet!

Momma says we are going to meet another Miracle today…. Lean on me….When your not strong….I’ll be your friend… Meet Eli! You can find Eli’s Journey on Facebook under “Baby Elijah James”…. Eli is a VERY special little man!  You see he is the only living person that has the most severe form of Spina Bifida (even above Rhema’s) called Rachischisis and survive.  You see, Rachischisis is 100% fatal, but thankfully no one told Eli that!  LOL!  He is a precious bundle of joy and it was such a blessing…

The Installation of a Miracle! Folks, today I wanted to share with you a recent MIRACLE that happened for our Rhema.  September has been approaching rapidly so we’ve been working hard to get everything ready for Rhema’s surgery.  Her new room is upstairs and it’s increasingly becoming more and more difficult to carry her up and down the stairs as she grows.  Plus, with both her legs being casted soon for 2 months, this will only make things that more difficult.  Several months ago I began to look for funding…

A Moment In The Life Of A Momma With A Special Need’s Child

A Moment In The Life Of A Momma With A Special Need’s Child

AFO Triage Center I never thought I would be learning the best ways to make Velcro adhere to plastic so that my kiddo could simply pull-to-stand or take a step.  I never envisioned that my precious-one would need braces 24/7 to protect her little ankles so they do not bend in ways that should never be humanly possible.  Or that my little princess would require protective shields to protect her delicate skin from injury like tearing, blistering, or worse — infection. A few weeks ago Rhema’s AFOs, a.k.a. “helper shoes”,…
