We are glad you are here!
Eleanor was diagnosed with multiple brain abnormalities as well as complete blindness (no eye balls or optic nerves) in utero. She was given a 1% chance of being born alive and we were strongly encouraged to abort her. They said that IF she was born alive, which they did not expect, she would be in a vegetative state & would not even be able to breathe on her own. Eleanor was born via c-section in April 2018. Today, she has passed her 2nd birthday and breathes on her own, eats by mouth, communicates mostly via sign language, is sharp as a tack, & joyful as can be! She’s been through 3 surgeries (1 to fix a malpractice issue & the other 2 because of fluid build up in her head) but is spunky, thriving, & learning new things each day!
We invite you to follow her journey as she continues to beat the odds & walks the path God has laid before her! She truly is a miracle & we are blessed to have her & share her life with those who are inspired by her story! God bless you all.
