Hey friends! 

 Recently, when mentioning a condition my daughter has, Bilateral Vocal Cord Paralysis, I was asked if she could talk; and I realized that it's such a rare condition that most people have no idea what it is! 

 So I decided to write about it, and you'll find my daughter's story in the button to the right, titled "My Daughter Has Bilateral Vocal Cord Paralysis".

 What IS Bilateral Vocal Cord Paralysis? Well click to the right to find out!

 Happy Tuesday!


  1. Praise To GOD! What a Little Fighter you have. She has already shown you her purpose by Surviving and showing others that the "conventional" ways are not always needed.

  2. found you from Give it to TAra mid week mingle..
    Love the blog would love a follow back


  3. when i read the link, this quote struck me as beautiful.
    "When she was about 9 months old, we had the elders lay hands on her and pray over her, but God chose not to heal her at that time. I believe that she has this condition for a reason that we don't know yet; but so far, it has greatly increased our faith and praises to the Lord for His mercies and faithfulness!"

    I'm going through medical things & reading that just literally brought tears to my eyes. God is faithful & there is a reason for everything in our lives, not only the things we see as good. I'll be praying that God keeps you full of strength and His love. xox

  4. I'll keep your daughter in my thoughts and prayers as she continues to grow and thrive (aside from those nasty colds!) So glad she didn't need a trach!
    Take care!

  5. What a precious little angel. I do not know anyone with this condition. I have a grandson with a syndrome and he has reflux which causes him to gag, choke and vomit a lot. So I understand that part. I will pray for your family and you baby.

  6. Hi - I'm following you from Blog It Forward Tuesday blog hop. ( Getting a late start I know )
    I want to come back and read this post when I have time because I haven't ever heard of this either so I am curious as well. Oh and the hair picture below cracked me up. My kids have been watching Billy The exterminator every night for the past week! haha.

  7. Hi! I just found your comment on my blog (things have been screw-y with e-mail and blogger lately), but I just wanted to thank you. It really meant a lot to me. You're right - God is the One who does the work in their hearts. I just went through a lot of realization with that with one of my friends, but for some reason it didn't "click" with me that it would be the same with our youth group kids. Weird.
    So, anyway, I just wanted to stop by and say that really quick. we're headed out the door, but I will have to come back and read about your daughter!
    Thank you so much, again!

  8. Thank you for sharing your story. You & your daughter will be in my prayers! My youngest son got pertusis last summer & when he would cough he would whoop so bad he couldn't breathe. We ended up in the hospital. It was so scary & so heartbreaking to see him struggling to breathe.

    I have become stronger as a person & my faith has grown stronger thru all of the illnesses & conditions. Thru the mountains & valleys, God is with us!
