Those of you who were at the match last year may remember the Barbour family, at the match, we presented them with a check from the Prayer Child Foundation for their daughter Paige. I just received an update from them about Paige and wanted to share it with you.
Paige is coming up on her second birthday on June 7th. She's had a great year of progress and is a social little girl. Unfortunately, due to her Lissencephaly, her seizures have returned but she is carefully monitored and is tolerating medication well. Paige loves her brother, Will, and lights up when he is around. She is happiest in her little couch watching Dora the Explorer or being snuggled by her family. Paige might not be able to walk or communicate but that doesn't stop our family from having fun. Paige has been to amusement parks, zoos, museums, and even ice skating! Paige works very hard during her 4 therapies a week and, though at times small, every ounce of progress is a miracle.
Thanks to The Prayer Child Foundation, we were able to get Paige quality therapeutic equipment and accessories that made our journey as a family easier.
She is the most lovable child and we appreciate all of your prayers and support. We especially want to thank Mr. and Mrs. Singer for all of their help and correspondence. God Bless you!
