Stacie Lewis’ experience raising hell…
... erm, raising a little girl with severe brain damage. The blog began in 2009 when May was 4 1/2 months old.
Currently, May enjoys bouncing and the dulcet tones of dub step.

While we marvel this week at our little three-year old, where was May developmentally at her first birthday? Rewind almost exactly two years ago: we’d been working with May on eating for six months at this point, but she had made very little progress and was losing weight.

Put aside the lunacy of making a medical decision based on financial constraints and […]
Six-months ago, when I wrote my bi-annual birthday review of May, I really despaired. I didn’t say so in the post – these birthday posts are times to reflect on progress and celebrate May’s happiness. But, her list of achievements was not all that distinguishable from the six-months previous. When I composed it, I panicked. […]
