No Longer Persistent Vegetative Status!

Image may contain: 1 person, indoor


We have HUGE news!   Our neurologist has confirmed what we've believed for awhile.  Selah is no longer diagnosed as being in a Persistent Vegetative Status (PVS)!    She has been UPgraded to Minimally Conscious(MC)!   This is a great big deal as many children like Selah do not progress forward.  It is slow but she is very aware of her surrounding and we believe she recognizes people.

She follows people with her eyes and turns her head to her name most of the time.  She watches tv.  she lets us know if she dislikes something with a scowl and tears too.  there is no doubt if she dislikes things-it is quite clear.

The neurologist was quite pleased with her progress as well as her overall health.

We were told (ie hit over the head) time and time again that she would never ever come out of the coma and have any other diagnosis.  Of course she may never progress any further given her age and other factors but she has come a long way.

We are grateful to God and for your many prayers!

Please still pray for Angela ( my last blog) that a family will step forward in the next few days for her!!!!!

Please pray for Angela

I'm still praying for a family for our sponsored child Angela!  She only has a few weeks to be eligible for adoption.

Here is how it works For aging out kids an i600a application needs to be received by USCIS before her 16th birthday. Homestudy can go in later. The i600a is the non child specific and is a better choice for aging out kids because it gives you more time on different steps than sending the i600.

I will help!  She has a $10,000 grant on Reece's Rainbow.  I pledge $1,000 (at least) personally  at travel time for a family if they would step forward.

This was me with Angela in Ukraine in 2012  We had already been sponsering her for a few months.  You can see Jon with Selah lying against him.  I think he was holding Sarah.  Victoria who got adopted is facing the camera.

This is her at Christmas with the doll we were able to buy for her.  She is doing much better in the new orphanage.  For her the war was a blessing because she was moved.  She is still tiny.  This girl will be 16 years old next month.  Please please pray that a family will step forward!  I will do everything I can to help them.  Please share this!!!!
