Protecting our children is a parental mandate. From the moment they take that first breath, we do everything in our power to make sure that nothing bad ever happens to them. And when it does? It’s guaranteed it hurts us WAY more than it hurts them. Because while they may be hurt physically, we live with the knowledge that our baby – our child – our love – could not be protected as well as we’d wish. When this teenager was playing basketball with her father, an accidental injury threatened to change her life forever. In fact, she was paralyzed and given only a 5% chance of ever walking again. But when she beat the odds? She stood and surprised the nurse who had been by her side. But that wasn’t the end for this miraculous teen! Take a look!
The idea of going from paralyzed to prom in two weeks is more than I can even fathom. It’s like something out of a book, but even then it wouldn’t quite be believable. But miracles happen. And her parents? All of us, really… We might want to wrap our kids in bubblewrap but sometimes things are going to happen. And, if we’re lucky, we’ll also get the chance to view a miracle in the process.
