Getting the Ball Rolling

After much prayer and research, we believe that God is leading us to take Sierra to China for stem cell treatments. We are working on filling out the registration form. We will be setting up a website for her with information about Sierra and our path to China.

Lord willing, we will have an arts and crafts table at the 4th of July celebration in Belton. We are making all sorts of craft items to sell to help raise money. I will post pictures of some of the items as we complete them.

For those of you who are local, if you could save your plastic bags for us that would be great! There is a recycled project that we are making with them.

Getting More Excited!

In my research on SCT (Stem Cell Treatments) all of the articles and information that I was coming across talked about children with ONH (Optic Nerve Hypoplasia) regaining sight from SCT. However, Sierra does not have ONH. Her optic nerves are damaged. I had not found anything about people with damaged optic nerves being helped.

Today I received an e-mail from one of the Yahoo Groups that got me so excited! A lady wrote about her brother-in-law, who is 57. He had damage to his optic nerves. His damage was so bad that he could not discern light or dark. He just went to China and received SCT. Now he is seeing light and also seeing colors. Once they start hyperbarics they expect to see more improvements.

Sierra cannot see, but she does have some sensitivity to light. Plus, she is still very young. I believe that God would use the SCT to help her vision immensely.

I am looking forward to continuing to see God's miracles in her life. She truly is our little miracle baby and God has taught us so much through her! She is a constant reminder of His goodness and power.
