Six months ago we were told by several specialists that we should never expect Jovia to stand independently.
“Impossible” they said, as they stared at her x-rays.
Week before last we were given hope and encouragement by world renowned prosthetist Kevin Carroll. He assured us that Jovia will not only stand, but may someday walk. “Never say never.” he told us several times.
That same week we watched a video of a sweet little boy with the same disabilities as Jovia. He was standing.
Jovia could hardly take her eyes off the screen.
This past week we’ve been practicing every day.
Today, Jovia stood, on her own with no assistance, for 30 minutes while watching a Baby Einstein video!
I can’t wait to take her back and show all the doctors who told us “never” just what this girl can do.
We are so proud of our sweet Jovia!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. -Philippians 4:13
