1. How wonderful to ‘meet’ Nevaeh! She sounds wise beyond her years. You’re doing a great job, Lauren!

  2. Such a beautiful story! Thanks for opening up and sharing your daughter with us!

  3. Dear Lauren, this is a beautiful story! Thank you so much for sharing it. As a mom of adult twin daughters with special needs, I understand a bit of where you’re coming from. You’re right, God created her in a unique way–for unique purposes– to bless many people and bring him honor and glory.

  4. Lauren, thank you for sharing this story! I honestly cried. It’s a beautiful story, and you have a beautiful daughter. May God continue to bless you all…you have no idea how much this story inpired me ❤️.

  5. Tears 😭 what a wonderful story and it sounds like you have an amazing little girl! I grew up with a girl who had the same issue and was always amazed at what she could do. Today she is a Forensic Scientist working for a government agency and is very successful in her chosen field. God chooses us for a reason and it looks like he chose your family perfectly to be role models of faith, strength and perseverance. Thank you for sharing 🙏🏻

  6. Oh my goodness. I am holding back the tears here. Although I feel no real need to. What an amazing testimony of God\’s faithfulness! There are so many tidbits in here that I can apply to my life right now, as a mother to a \”ten-fingered, ten-toed\” two yo girl: She is just the way she needs to be. Sometimes, I want her to be more calm (like me), more introverted (like me), more obedient (not so much like me), instead of the spunky, somewhat dramatic little girl she is. Your example of joyfully embracing who Nevaeh is, not just accepting your lot, is a light! Thank you. And bless Nevaeh\’s determined spirit. Thank you for sharing!

  7. Thank you so much for sharing this story of such an amazing young lady- your own beautiful daughter! I’m sure it’s hard to share something so personal with the world, but so appreciate that you did. You & Nevaeh have blessed and encouraged me today- thank you!

  8. Sitting here bawling reading your story. Thanks so much for sharing it with us, and hugs and prayers for all of you!

  9. What a beautiful story Lauren! I was so moved by what you wrote and am glad you chose to share it with us! God bless you’re family and your sweet daughter Naveah. She is certainly blessed to have such a wonderful mother! 🙂

  10. This is my favorite of your Overcomer Series! She is truly a blessing and so was Ethan to notice her and to be so thoughtful to try to help her. I am not sure how old he is but it’s funny how receptive children can be. I’ve always loved her name because it’s “Heaven” spelled backwards. <3

  11. Thank you for sharing Naveah’s wonderful story! God knit her together in your womb, and she perfect in His creation. God has great plans for her!

  12. Thank you so much for sharing. You just touched my momma heart in such a sweet way. Last summer my six year old was in swim class with a little boy who is also missing his hand, my son was scared to play with him. He had never seen someone like this. We talked about it, and decided to start asking to boy questions about who his favorite superhero was—Ironman, my son’s as well. Once my realized he loved superheroes he forgot about their differences and instantly became his friend. I’d been praying for God to open a door, for my son to be kind. I didn’t know what to do, but God made a way. Thank you so much for sharing your life and story. ❤️

  13. Thank You for sharing this beautiful story. God bless you and your precious little girl Nevaeh. ((hugs))

  14. Lauren, I really was touched reading your story about Neveah. I am a teacher as well as a blogger, and a recent alumni is Nikita Howarth who has no right hand and her left arm ends below the elbow. I was always amazed by what Nikita could do- she is a paralympian swimmer who won gold at the last games – but even in her everyday life. For example, we had her present at our awards ceremony and she was picking up the medals, passing them over and shaking hands. Neveah sounds like she has a similar, powerful spirit. Thank you for sharing her story.

  15. Nice to meet you Nevaeh! Thank you for sharing your story!
