Anna, our first 'Heroes Among Us' honoree!
submitted by: Jay W. Brynild
The reason I nominate my wife as a hero is because she truly is one in every sense of the word. For the past 10 years she has raised her severely handicapped daughter on her own for the most part and continues to work at a fulltime role helping other parents gain knowledge on how to get the best for their handicapped/disabled children. Itís not unusual for my wife to be on the phone until 1am because a parent called at 9:30pm crying, ready to give up. And she does this with a baby monitor next to her, knowing her own daughter could have seizure at any time. This from the mother who was told by doctors "your child will never walk, talk." Through this motherís persistence her daughter does walk and does talk, not many words but talking none the less.
