Do You Know What It Is Like To Have God Put His Hands On Your Child's Face...

Do you know what it is like for your child to not be able to speak to you? To not be able to tell you how his day was? What he wants to be when he grows up? What his favorite color is?

Do you know what it is like to have your child talk to you? To say that he doesn't want to miss the bus...That he wouldn't like to live in Texas because it is a desert and after 5 pm you can't go out because the snakes will bite you, they have plants with things on them that can hurt you ( but he forgot what they are called--cactus)....

Maybe I am lucky, because I know what both of those things are like...At eight years old, my child could not have a conversation with me. Just two short years later, he is so different. God has shown us mercy. Do you know what it is like to have God put His hands on your child's face and breathe life into his nostrils--for a second time?

Then the LORD God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. ...Genesis 2:7

  1. Lovely storey, can I ask how many stem cell therapies has your boy had over the years, how many have you paid for , kens story seems to be the only story I found so well publicised, I can't find many parents with the same story, can I ask was your son one of the children involved in the Panama experiment on cord stem sell therapy, can you tell me please how much has this treatment cost you over the years, sorry for all the questions but I am in the UK, and looking on to sell cell treatment as I too have a soon who is autistic, I've just not yet decided if putting my sons life at risk for a possible positive outcome is worth the risk yet, I love him dearly and life is extremely difficult bit I couldn't imagine life without him, but would do anything , if I knew it was safe, not in a 50\ 50 chance but a much higher chance of survival , an no permanent damage to my son, I understand you must get questions lime these all the time so please excuse me if I sound very straight forward, bit kens story is all abt his success and not much about the possible difficulties that he could have had with this treatment, how did you now this was the right decision for your son and you .
