Scroll down to the bottom there,

A year ago, this child was still up to her thighs in hot pink casts, courtesy of Dr. Dobbs and the Shrinners Hospital of St. Louis. In October, having never taken an independent step in her almost three years of life, she put her first, "corrected foot" forward with the help of a two foot high walker......and there has been no stopping her since!
Today, 10 months and hours of hard work later, she leaves her walker behind!
Upon meeting our "Determinator", her therapist declared, "one day she will just let go and take off" and she did!
There is a doctor in Guangzhou, China. If you go there for a Visa medical, you may run into him. He may even look at your child, as he did at ours, and question if you are sure you want that child..... especially if your child has "deformed" feet....to go with the 6 inch scar across her back....that clearly indicates, if only to him, that she will not walk. "Do you know your child's feet are deformed?" the translator asked us as the doctor looks to us for confirmation that we understand. "Yes." we say. "You understand that she can not walk?" We nod. We understand what you think. We know what our God can do though!
And just to take it over the top for you, have a conversation with Miss Sassafras....because she is ALL that and a bag of chips!
