This is my sweet baby brother, J.R. He was born when I was twelve years old and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE him! 🙂
When he was only 13 years old he was injured in an accident. The accident left him a quadriplegic. He can’t speak and he has no control over his muscles. He communicates with us by moving his eyes. He looks up for yes and he looks down for no. But mostly he just Smiles and he brings joy to us every minute that we are around him. For many years he has been pretty much stuck at home because of no way to get around. Medical transport will pick him up and take him back and forth to the Dr. but that’s it. Until now…. because of YOU and your support of me on Teachers Pay Teachers I was able to take part of my earnings and buy a handicap accessible 15 passenger van. Our whole family will be able to go to Disney World this Summer. You have no idea what this means for my brother. His whole life has taken on new meaning. Now we can take him to the mall, to the movies, to the park, all the little places that we take for granted. All because of each and every one of you. I can’t thank you enough. The smile on his face as we took him out on his first outing is priceless. Thank you so much for helping me change his life!
