Shay was born with a birth defect that I cannot even begin to spell so I won't try cause I would probably steer you to another place of the body, but when she was born, she was not able to breath. She did not have nasal passages inside her nose. She was rushed to Children's Hospital in Seattle where they did surgery and put tubes into her nose to keep it open while it healed. When she got older and began to lose her baby teeth, there was not enough room for her permanent ones. We found out that part of the birth defect sometimes affected the mouth and she was one of the sometimes. She had to have several permanent teeth as well as baby teeth pulled to make room for the ones she would be able to keep. She also had to have the roof of her mouth split to reshape the inside. This is a very well deserved smile and I am proud of my Baby..........Good Job Peanut!!!
In 2008, I made a trip to Tanzania. While I was there, I met a Great Man of God, who devoted his life to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He was in need of a building and I promised to do what I could to help. Knitting for Tanzania is my attempt to help him build a church building. All profits from sales of my knits go directly to help with his building project.
