My name is Jenna, my little boy Adam is nearly six years ago, and I truly believe the Lord brought him into my life to give me the will to fight. You see just weeks before he was born I was in a car accident that nearly killed me, when the doctors told me I would never walk again I was heartbroken, but my first thought was the baby I was carrying, I did not know if I could face loosing that baby, my husband and I had been trying for so long to have a child. Now I wondered if the baby was going to make it.
By the Grace of God, Adam made it into this world, I was in the Rehab hospital when I went into Labor, and gave birth to a healthy happy baby boy, and all the thoughts of giving up escaped me, I had a son, and I was going to make it.
Rehab was hard, and taking care of an infant son was hard, but it was all worth it, I watched as my son went from helpless in fant, to toddling toddler, I greived over the loos of the ability to walk and instead I found joy in the gift that was my son, I loved Adam with my whole heart and he gave me the joy I needed to get on, well God gave me the joy through him.
I had fallen away from the Lord a couple of years prior but after my son was born I knew I needed to rededicate my life back to Christ, I needed to realize just how blessed I was my legs did not define me.
A few years after Adam was born my husband Kenny left me, I am not angry or bitter towards him, I knew that would do no good, and because of Adam we are still in contact, but having Kenny gone made me realize I needed to lean on the good Lord more, and I needed to forgive Kenny which I have.
My son and I are happy, we know the joy that comes in serving the Lord, and the accident that led me to depending on this wheelchair to get me from place to place, the accident that took my legs gave me something so much more, the realization that with God's Grace I could get through anything.
Well this isn't the last you heard from me, but Adam wants to go outside and ride his bike a little so I am going to close for now.
