I am NOT one to ask for a hand out, but I will admit that life is TOUGH sometimes and we can all use a little help from time to time. If you feel lead to bless us with financial help for medical related expenses, this is a safe way to do it.
I am a complicated woman... I wear MANY hats such as Daughter of Christ, Mommy, Special Needs Mommy, Business Woman, Daughter & Sister. I live my life in the grace of God, and hope to always model His love and peace, but fall short MANY times! I hope to share a glimps of our life and welcome you into our hearts here! I look forward to being real with you and sharing my heart.
Audrey is the surpirse child that delights my heart daily! She is a happy, compasionate beyond understand, joyful child who adores the Lord and delights those around her. Audrey loves to create, whether it be a new song, an artistic creation or a silly story. She also loves to perform, and is following in Josie's footsteps as a dancer and singer. My Princess Audrey lights up my heart and reminds me daily that God is faithful and full of surprises!
Nathaniel is my darling son, the one and only boy in a gaggle of girls! He is an amazing young man with character and charisma to spare! He has a spirit that is pure and shines through to all who encounter him. But Nathaniel also has some other things that make him special too. Nathaniel was born with a sever birth defect (do you know how much I dislike that term?) called Spina Bifida. Everyday our family deals with the effects of this condition, and we all have learned to lean on the Lord to get us through the twists and turns of Spina Bifida! Nathaniel is all boy with a love for all things ball, and his new passion is surfing! Nathaniel shows wisdom and understanding beyond his years, and is such a trooper in dealing with all things Spina Bifida, and yet still living every minute of his life to the fullest in the glory of God!
Even though October and Spina Bifida Awareness Month is over, Tiffany from Growing From the Obstacles still want to continue bringing you a look at what Spina Bifida REALLY is, and the stories of our friends and family who live with it daily!!! We will feature stories of SB families and their journey every Thursday, as long as we have stories to feature! So come on over and join in!
To Tiffany and I Spina Bifida is far more than a Neural Tube Birth Defect, Spina Bifida is merely a way of live for those who live with it. (And BTW, even if that is the proper medical description of Spina Bifida, I still HATE the word defect in it, as that word implies there is something wrong with folks with Spina Bifida and we do NOT believe that! We believe these precious folks were made special for a reason.) I hope you enjoy meeting our family as much as we enjoy the honor of being able to share them with you.
(If you want to share your story with us to be featured this month please see THIS POST on how to submit it!)
