Success Stories

My name is Elizabeth, and I am the mother of three wonderful children. While I was pregnant with Aiden, my youngest child, there were a lot of complications, resulting in him being born two months premature. He spent the first month of his life in NICU at Owensboro Regional Health in Owensboro, KY. The whole time we were there, I was told Aiden would be a special needs child. Aiden suffered from sleep apnea, and doctors wondered if he could see. I grew depressed thinking of all the things my baby could and would miss out on as he grew. I feared how I was going to take care of my special child all on my own. I shared my concerns to the nurses, and they referred me to the HANDS Program.

After getting in touch with HANDS, I began meeting with Heather. Heather listened to my concerns for Aiden, and tailored our meetings around his needs. Aiden is almost eight months old, and is doing great. We have since been given the best news- that Aiden, indeed, can see! He has been beating the odds that have been stacked against him since birth.

Heather has been wonderful! She has gone above and beyond to come up with activities and resources to help my baby boy. I could not be more thankful for Heather! Together, Heather and HANDS have been a real Godsend!
