Meet Emily, our
miracle baby. She was born on July 9, 2001, diagnosed
with full Trisomy 18 (a lethal genetic disorder/chromosome
abnormality) and expected to live as little as a few
days but most certainly not more than a year. She is
now 4 1/2 years old and an absolute doll.
Despite her physical
and mental disabilities and limitations, she brings
such joy to our lives and offers a beacon of hope to
others faced with the possibility of having a child
with special needs. She also proves without a shadow
of a doubt that there is a God and He is alive and well
and moving on planet earth!
In her four + years,
she has totally flabbergasted the medical community
with her life and her miraculous story that includes
a supernatural healing from hepatoblastoma (childhood
liver cancer) without medical treatment. Through megadoses
of prayer, The Great Physician took care of her cancer
treatment that resulted in a healed, happy, beautiful
little girl full of love and personality. We all feel
she is with us for a reason and has a definite mission
in life that unfolds little by little daily. Her full
story with photos can be found on her web site at :
Be encouraged and
blessed by God's amazing testimony in our Emily.
