When Lorena sings you forget her struggles, and you just want to celebrate in her victory. Her voice is amazing, making you wonder how such a big voice can come out of such a tiny child. But man can Lorena sing!!!
Lorena wasn't supposed to survive her birth let alone live to sing, but she has been about beating the odds ever since. She weighed less than a can of pepsi when she was born, can you imagine given birth to someone who weighed less than a pound and came into this world four months earlier than she should have.
Dovtors gave us no hope that she would survive, they had never seen such a tiny child survive, but one thing Lorena is a survivor.
Early on we knew something was wrong, and the option to terminate was given to us. Lorena wasn't developing as she should they said, and my pregancy was racked with complications.
When Lorena did survive, we were told she would never walk, talk, learn, but despite everything Lorena does everything but walk, her legs are just to weak to walk unaided, but believe me she doesnt let anything slow her down, and with the grace of God her lungs developed. She has Cerebral Palsy, but she is no way mentally challenged if anything she outsmarts everyone around here.
Lorena has a voice that you could not believe too,yu hear her sing and you can not help but wonder how a voice like that could come out of a seven year old, but it does.
Well I better go, got to leave in a half an hour to pick Lorena up from school until next time this is Misty Lorena's proud Mamma.
God Bless and Merry Christmas to you all!!!
