“I’ll Run with You”

 

The song “I’ll Run with you” is one of my favorites that is sung by Broken Vessels.  When I first heard it, I knew I wanted to make a video of some of my favorite pics of the boys. 

Right in the middle of it all, There Is Jesus!

Life has a way of lifting you up in the most exciting times and tear you down in some of the most horrific times.   Some say it’s whatever road you choose to follow.  Whether good or bad, YOU choose!  I think that God somehow, someway saw fit that He chose me for this specific unique life with my boys.

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!
