Hannah's BIG WISH

My Big Sis!

Hannah wants to meet and "hang out" with Beyonce one day.  She affectionately refers to her as her "big sis".  Her Make-A-Wish Trip to Disney in 2005 came 2nd to her wanting to spend some time with her "big sis".
 

Summertime!

**UPDATE**
PRAISE GOD - this wish above has come true for Hannah.  She was 'speechless' :) upon 1st meeting her shining star.........BEYONCE!  All we can say, as Hannah's parents, is that Beyonce is one of the kindest human beings here on earth.  She was very gracious and sweet to Hannah.  Hannah, of course, was all smiles.  Her meeting her has reinforced and cemented her LOVE for her big sis, and I'm happy to report that that sisterhood continues to this day.  It is difficult to express HOW MUCH this means to Hannah.  Her face beams just to hear her name.  Beyonce, you're THE BEST!  Like Hannah, you too are I-R-R-E-P-L-A-C-E-A-B-L-E.

Hannah's 2nd wish is to live in a house that's equpped with the tools necessary for her to be as independent as possible.  To be able to do for herself and not have to wait to be lifted and/or moved.
 
Hannah is strong-minded and desires to do as much as she can on her own.  With Hannah being unable to walk (scoots on floor at home or uses a wheelchair when fracture-free) and reach the normal height of items (she's very short in stature) it makes it very difficult for her to complete a task independent of assistance from someone.  An accessible home would allow greater independence.  Her growth would not be stunted by housing needs.  Her "quality of life" would greatly improve as she would be able to be more independent and be afforded the space needed for her to manuever her wheelchair in a safer manner.  The need is great but we know OUR GOD is bigger and will supply.  
 
Thank you Lana T., Dr. Shapiro, and Crystal L. for nominating us for
Extreme MakeOver Home Edition. 
 
**UPDATE**
We were nominated back in 2005/2006.   Unfortunately, no call to us  directly from the show though an inquiry to nominator was received for "more info".  We are happy to learn (and have watched) that EMHE did spotlight 2 families with a child (both boys) who have osteogenesis imperfecta.  Shout out to little Jake!  Hannah and him actually met at an OI conference in a swimming pool, of all places.  [Aquatic Therapy is a key exercise that helps to build muscle strength and endurance in those who have OI ] What a great demonstration of love and compassion this show reveals.  Tears of JOY each time.  GOD bless everyone behind Extreme MakeOver Home Edition.  We love yall.
