"We don't know if your daughter will have problems with speech and language. The stroke injured the area where speech is usually located." These were just a few of the words that we heard when our daughter, less than a month old, was diagnosed with having experienced a stroke. The doctors suspect that the stroke occurred sometime near birth.
Fast forward 15 years.... We're very excited to share the wonderful news that our daughter placed FIRST in her category at our state's 4-H competition... in public speaking! She gave a speech on how to prevent traumatic brain injury, which she hopes will help others in the future.
