Thank you for allowing me — along with my husband Norman, and my son Brandon — to share our story with you. We hope to convey many thoughts from our heart but most of all to remind everyone that we are all Gifts from God. We hope our story encourages those families that have had a child diagnosed with a chronic illness or developmental challenge. You get a very special way of looking at your child. You get to relish over the little things that most parents take for granted like walking, eating, sitting up, and communicating. Your child is a gift from God! Appreciate their strengths, do not dwell on their weaknesses, and don’t ever forget to take time to just enjoy them! By the same token, keep striving to help them become the best they can be. Do not give up!
Additionally, we hope to humble families that have a typical developing child. Appreciate their strengths and do not dwell on their weaknesses. Take a moment to recognize all the little stuff just as much as the big stuff and do not take for granted the typical milestones. Enjoy your children! Take time to just enjoy them!
Many Blessings, Melisa, Norman and Brandon Kuehn
