Ok, so May is pediatric stroke month and i want to do a fundraiser to raise money for CHASA! (support group and wonderful resource for pediatric stroke victims.) As most of you know Meely has a stroke at some point in her life before she was 3 days old.  When Emilia was first diagnosed with her stroke I was terrified. I would spend hours , mostly at night after everyone was in bed researching. To be honest researching meant reading stories about what might be and becoming completely devastated. Jess saw the toll this was taking on me and made me promise to stop my research. He basically told me nothing bad was gonna happen, and it it did "we got this". So I promised to stop which I did....mostly. We continued to gave it to God. I know without a doubt that we along with several other people prayed for Meely everyday. We have had some minor bumps along the way, but without a doubt our kid is a fighter!! Meely is living proof that miracles happen! God is so good! Meely is the poster child of what how amazing a tiny brain can be. Her brain made new pathways, completely avoiding the "damaged areas". She has absolutely no neurological defects. She is a very smart little girl and we are so beyond blessed to have her. Unfortunately not every pediatric stroke victim has such a happy ending. CHASA is a refuge in a storm to these families. A sounding board when no one else knows what you are going through and honestly an answer to many prayers. Please consider donating to this cause.
