Epilepsy

Acceptance and the LOVE of Football

 

We all want to be accepted for who we are in this life.  Right?

As a special needs mom, I want this for my son. ACCEPTANCE. I have never seen him so excited than this very day (other than at church) Ha Ha! Some of Brent’s classmates, his teacher and coach, all came over to our home, as well as the local newspaper, and presented him with a team jersey. Go Lions!

Cortical Vision Impairment (CVI)

What is Cortical Vision Impairment (CVI)?

It is what my child has been diagnosed with.

The medical term is

  • a form of vision impairment that is caused by a brain problem rather than an eye problem.  CVI is caused by any process that damages the visual parts of the brain.

So, this means basically that Brent is blind.  Blind only in his right eye so I am thankful that he still can see good in his left eye.  With the diagnosis, comes Vision Therapy!

My Kind Of RARE

 Loving2016-02-09 17.05.06 someone who is RARE is a precious honor.  I am thankful God has given me the privilege to love 2 special RARE people in this life.  This RARE condition is a Chromosome and Neurological Disorder called L1 Syndrome. The ins and outs of daily struggles makes it worthwhile when the smallest little grin comes across their face or hearing the laughter and seeing the silly faces they make when they think no one is watching or listening or even signing a new sign after teaching it to them over and over and over again and you feel like your not winning this battle and all of a sudden…. he signs….

Blind

I think I am drowning in my own sorrow.  I’m the lady who can handle everything that comes her way…. ya, NOT so much! I am drowning.  I pick myself up off the ground every single day hoping that I have made some sort of difference in a person’s life.  My son’s life. His life matters! Brently’s life does matter!  He has a purpose! God says he does. (Jer. 29:11)
