Reaching New Heights!


A few nights ago I was taking a shower and Joe (age 5) was watching TV in my room. After my shower I saw that he was up on the bed...no big deal...until I noticed that the step stool wasn't up to the bed.

I asked him how he got on the bed and he giggled and said "I climbed." Our bed is just a regular bed, not higher than the standard, but Joe has never been able to get on it...I have either had to pick him up or he has had to use a step stool.

Each night since then he has climbed up on the bed and then has said to me "Ask me how I got on the bed." It's amazing how these "little" things can be so BIG.

Soccer Star!



Megan is a nine year old in utero stroke survivor who underwent a partial left hemispherectomy at the age of 15 months and eye surgery at the age of five. She has had tendon transfers on her right arm and leg, she wears a DAFO on her right leg and a brace on her right hand.

Megan is currently playing in a soccer league called "TOP Soccer" for special needs children and young adults. (That's a photo of her and her coach to the right!)

Megan is an amazing child who never gives up and sees the good in everyone and everything. We truly can see God's love through her eyes.
