Faces of Spina Bifida: Meet Jarrett


This is Jarrett, he is 7 and he rocks Spina Bifida. Jarrett was diagnosed at 20 weeks in utero. Doctors urged us to terminate, but we knew God had a bigger plan for us. Jarrett has never ceased to amaze us. He always worked so hard at physical therapy and did so with a confident and adorable smile. In recent years Jarrett began playing baseball for Miracle League of Mercer County. He has developed such a love for baseball especially for the Trenton Thunder since they have partnered with Miracle League. A few games a season the Trenton Thunder come to the Field of Dreams to play with the kids. It is just amazing!! Jarrett has become quick friends with a few Thunder players like Dan Fiorito and Cale Cashow. We make it a point to see them play many times throughout the spring and summer months at their home field called Arm & Hammer Park.

We had a major milestone this year......Jarrett began walking without his walker. He first started doing this around the house and then he did it at his Miracle League game. God had a plan for our boy and it was to redefine what Spina Bifida is and breakdown barriers for those with mobility impairments.
