Today is September 4, which means it is World Cerebral Palsy Day! In honor of this day, and in honor of my two beautiful children who are living with CP, I have decided to share with you a few of the faces of CP. Faces of little ones waiting, all over the world, for their mommies and daddies to find them and scoop them up and realize what they have been missing.

Aren't they all beautiful? These children, and so many more, are featured at www.reecesrainbow.org
And how did we celebrate World Cerebral Palsy Day, you ask? We spent the day at Shriners Hospital in Portland, Oregon. The appointment was for Gideon, Blessing, and Micah, and let me tell you, it was LONG. It was THOROUGH. It was GRUELING. It was AMAZINGLY HELPFUL. Very long day, leaving at 4 am and arriving home at 7 pm, and I'm so glad to finally be home. We have a game plan. We have surgeries in the works. For all three of the kids. That's a whole other post! But the people at Shriners are so patient, and kid-friendly, and eager to help, and able to endure high noise levels . . . I just can't say enough good things about them! Thank you, Shriners!
