Faces of Spina: Meet Brenden, Jonas, and Carter!

This is Brenden
Another cutie in glasses.  I love it.  Brenden is 2 years old.  Brenden wears braces and he has a walker.  He has a younger sister, Madelynn.  He recently participated in the Walk-N-Roll for Spina Bifida.  He raised over $4,100!!  Wow!
I just thought this picture was cute.

This is Jonas
Jonas is 3 years old.  He has an older sister, Clara, and there is a baby on the way!  Jonas' mom recently wrote about when she was pregnant with Jonas and receiving the diagnoses of SB.  You can read the entire post by clicking here but I wanted to share a piece of it with you.

"Now here we are, exactly 4 years later, and I am humbled and overwhelmed with how much has changed. Having a child with special needs has helped me appreciate things I previously took for granted. It has not been a pain or stress free 4 years and it continues to be hard at times, but it has been the most rewarding and meaningful 4 years. Seeing Jonas do something he has been working on for months - or even years - brings the greatest happiness."

 This picture just makes me laugh.  He is too cute.

This is Carter
Carter was born April 10, 2008.  He is 2 1/2 years old.  This little guy has had more than his fair share of surgeries but he's still smiling.  Carter has 2 older sisters, Sophie and Hailey, who absolutely adore him.  Carter has a mobile stander and a wheelchair.  This is what mom has to say about her little guy

"never imagined how much a little boy who is "differently abled" could teach us about life. He is exactly who God planned him to be and he fits our family perfectly. We are blessed!!"
I had to share this picture.  I can appreciate a really cool wheelchair costume!  And this is a REALLY cool wheelchair costume!
