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.

A couple of weeks ago, a professor running a vision clinic drew my attention to my daughter’s eyes. Her beautiful, big eyes. “She has very large corneas,” he said. ”Do you know what happened to May?
