Hannah’s Scoliosis

We have known for a long time that Hannah had scoliosis.  (Her birthmother also had it.) In the past we have taken her for x-rays to make sure it was being kept in check. At that time the degree of the scoliosis was only 19%, and the doctor just told us to keep an eye on it as they do not do anything if it is under 20%.

A dark, dark day that ended with hope.

Richard and I NEVER again want to go through a day like we experienced yesterday. It was Friday and it was CRUNCH time! Hannah was due to be released and we had NO solution. Talk about being between a rock and a hard place. We knew she could not come home and we also knew that we didn’t want to put her in the hands of CPS but what other option did we have? Back when Hannah’s original... read more
