This is my favourite picture.
Its my son,Calvin and our lil friend Brooke.
Both Calvin and Brooke have severe disabilities,they both became disabled a day apart in November 2008,Calvin was 14 and was run over,causing severe brain injury & Brooke was only 4 months old when she suddenly developed breathing difficulties,
Neither child was expected to survive,both ventilated (life support machine)
Brooke was diagnosed with a condition so rare,that until recently she was the only one in the world. Her mum was told she was life limited,and wouldn't make it to 4,she had the biggest 3rd birthday party.
Calvin was in a long term coma,the Drs called it permanent vegetative state,with little hope of recovery,Calvin,however did come out his coma and spent 5 years in hospitals and rehabilitation units.
Fast forward 10 years and Brooke continues to defy the medical profession,while she still remains vented,shes contented and has a quality of life.
Calvin,now 24,continues to improve beyond Drs predictions,although now a wheelchair user with other difficulties is spiritual,a funny and kind and happy person.
Brooke and Calvin are the most inspirational people I've ever met,& im blessed he calls me Mum. 💜
