As parents, one of the things we most often forget is taking care of ourselves! When you are the parent of a special-needs or chronically-ill child, taking time for yourself seems selfish and all but impossible. However, it is so important to take at least a moment or two each…
Nothing quite prepares you for the moment you bring a beautiful child in to this world with a special set of needs. We had heard this song countless time before, but only after bringing a child as beautiful and special as Devyn in to this world has it really rung true.

There are no words to describe how amazing this young woman is!
Krista Horning is 25 years old and lives near Minneapolis, Minnesota, with her parents and two siblings. After graduating from home school she volunteered and now works part time at a clinic that meets the needs of children with disabilities.
Krista has the same syndrome that Devyn has, called Apert Syndrome, which causes abnormal growth in her skull, hands, and feet along with numerous other problems. She has endured over 60 surgeries.
Krista enjoys reading, writing, and helping people. In 2010 her book, Just the Way I Am, was published and sold out its first printing in one month. Krista wrote the book to thank God for His grace in her life and to encourage people with the amazing truth that He is sovereign over all things, including disability. Krista’s life verse is Jeremiah 29:11: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”
