Donations

As you might notice, to the right of this blog post is a new button. I am not one to ask people for money - EVER. But since so many people have asked me how they can contribute to Christian, my IT guy hooked me up and helped me create a button where people can donate directly to our PayPal account. I certainly don't want to stop God's blessings on us when He sees fit to send them!

We would like to say thank you to all of the support, encouragement, and love that we have received! It has been unbelievable to say the least, but we are so proud to share Christian with the world!

  1. Hello Lacey Nicole, i saw your video and was touched by your story.
    I was surprised to hear that someone condemned abortion because you do not have committed.
    This child has the greatest parents in the world and will grow with love.
    With your eyes you see a lot of troubles in this world without eyes the world and people appreciate you for what they are.
    I admire your strength and love for your child.

    I will follow, because such people deserve attention for what they are

    Best regards Mark (Holland)

  2. I wanted to say thank you for putting that paypal link up on behalf of ALL of your and Christians supporters who requested that you allow us to be able to give in anyway we can. This is definitely GOD doing his work through all of us to make sure that all of Christians needs are met. "Hopefully above and beyond" Thank you again :)

  3. Very inspiring and courageous on your part. I love your smile. And I wish the best for Christian as he grows up. He will have many obstacles to overcome, but with a very caring mother like you he can make it through.

  5. Your son is so beautiful - inside and out. Just looking at him makes me smile. Even without seeing him, I knew he would. All children are blessings, brought to earth to teach us how to love and appreciate the beauty around us.

    Not only is Christian a blessing, but he has been blessed to have you as parents. And, those of us who have heard about your story are grateful because through you we see the miracle of love.

    Wishing you all the best, now and always! Many hugs, tickles and warm wishes to Christian!

  7. I found your blog through Spearmint Baby blog. It is so inspiring to see you and Christian. My best friend carried a baby to term a few years ago after getting some very discouraging information during an early ultasound. "Abortion" was an ugly word that was silently going through the heads of everyone we knew - myself included. We all prayed and my friend did, in fact, decide to carry her little girl to term and we were all able to spend a few hours with her. Those hours were the most special of my entire life and forever changed my position on abortion. It makes me so happy to see Christian happy and already making such a positive impact in our world. Thank you for sharing your story.

  8. that was a wonderful video, thank you for sharing it :)
    You may have already heard of it, but the National Federation of the Blind has support systems (or they did last I heard) for parents with blind children. It might be something to look into.

  9. You are one inspirational woman! I hope that I can be half the mom that you are. You have so much love in your heart! You never understand how to love someone till you have a child and I can't imagine having a child with a disablity. I hope that everything continues to work out!

  10. Praise the Lord for precious Christian and the work He is doing through him and you! How I love our Lord and His ways..all for His glory. You're video brought tears to my eyes as I know somewhat of what its like when things don't turn out quite as you planned with our little ones. Keep shining your bright light for Jesus! With love.

  11. Hello from Greece. Christian is a lucky child because he have wonderful parents. My young brother born with bilateral cleft palate and lip and because of that he doesn have one ear too. Love is the only power these kids needs and trust me when they grow up they are stronger than everyone else in this world!

  13. Lacey, have you ever seen "The Woman Who Willed a Miracle?" It was an after school special back in the 1980's based on a true story of May Lemke who took in a severely disabled baby boy and loved him like no one else could. It is so inspiring. I watch it frequently.

    Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbMx5jIWMkY

    You can also read "May's Boy" by Shirlee Monty.

    I think you'll find both uplifting and encouraging.

  17. I think God picked the perfect parents for that precious little boy! I know you will provide the best life possible for him! I loved your video. I just wanted to say let him decide how far he will go in life, always believe and he will go far.

Don't Get Your Pleasure From My Pain

Hey guys! Thank you so much for joining  me  today on my blog! I've got something today that I want to talk about that has just fired  me  up, you guys. And so let's just jump right into it. I'm going to share a screen capture here for you guys.  I received a comment a few days ago on a video I posted. The video is of  me  holding Christian while Christian smiles. During the video, I give him a kiss on the cheek while a song plays in the background. The video text says "When people tell  me  that Christian shouldn't have been born" and then the lyrics to the song says "Let  me  show you what you're missing. Paradise."  So somebody actually had the... I don't even know what the word is... I would say low intelligence, but I don't even think it comes from that, and I don't want to insult people with intellectual disabilities because they know how to be decent humans. But the had the audacity or gall or whatever to comment on that video

People Throw Rocks At Things That Shine

Hey guys. Today I want to talk about something that's come up recently in my life, but has sort of been an issue on and off for most of my life and something that most of you have probably dealt with at one point or another. Before I get started, I just wanted to say thank you for being here. Your reading and sharing of my content supports me and gets it into the hands of more people. So thank you!  I want to talk about bullies. I can't say that I got bullied a lot when I was in school.  Of course, there's always going to be some kid who makes some rude comment here in there, or finds a reason to make fun of you, but I can't say that I was subjected to serious bullying as a child. I didn't really experience bullying until adulthood, and it really got bad when  Christian was born. That's when it really laid it on heavy for me.  Of course, a lot of the bullying was because of Christian, but they were targeting me. I was the one that they came after, because Christ

Why I Won't Allow My Toddler to Have Cosmetic Surgery

It strikes me as odd that I have been asked many, many times if I will have Christian undergo cosmetic surgery to repair his birth defect. Apparently, it's not an odd question to most people, because I could not tell you how many times I've been asked. The number literally lurks somewhere close to 500, if I had to guess. I am not AT ALL offended by the question, and I enjoy explaining my answer, but still, I find it odd to be asked. Imagine your beautiful child that you simply adore. Her little button nose, those ears he got from his daddy, that little smile with that one not-so-straight tooth right up front, those freckles that dot her cheeks, that bright red hair, or that jet black hair. As you imagine that, I am sure you have a few emotions that go along with it: adoration, admiration, love. You probably think that your child is the prettiest thing you've laid eyes on. Well, when I look at my child, with tissue in the place of where eyes should be, and a crooked s
