My mind and my body may grow weak, but God is my strength; he is all I ever need. – Psalm 73:26
Last March 2009, I had a post entitled Rosaries for Baby Hannah. Baby Hannah whose real name is Hannah Ysabelle S. Cordoviz is a very cute baby girl afflicted with Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome or CCHS. According to a tv program where Baby Hannah’s condition was featured, CCHS is a rare illnes and a lifelong breathing disorder. It also delays developmental stages of Hannah. Because of her situation, her parents made a major decision. Her parents resigned in their job and decided to commit their lives taking care of their child.
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, that is.
Baby Hannah’s parents make rosaries to support their daughter’s medical needs. When I visited Baby Hannah’s website, my initial plan is to grab a sample of a rosary bracelet that they sell online. But I think it would be better if you would go directly to Baby Hannah’s website http://www.hannahysabelle.multiply.com/. Read her lifestory. Watch her videos. See her photos. And click the link: Store or click here.
To give you a glimpse of Baby Hannah and her loving parents, here’s a video (from the show “The Beat”) that will surely touch your heart.
Before I end this, I would like to borrow few lines from an article I read in Kerygma magazine (February 2009 issue) entitled “Superman Isn’t Brave; Real People Are Braver” by Rosanne Romero.
“Superman isn’t brave…You can’t be considered brave if you knew you were indestructible. It’s people like them who are brave. They know they are not indestructible. They know they can easily be defeated, but they fight anyway.
They wince, they flinch, they cry when they’re hit. But they keep on and don’t give up. They’re the kind of brave that people don’t clap for. They don’t get awarded medals. Their names aren’t called to go up on stage. But one thing is sure. God applauds them. Their lives are not pointless because God uses their adversities to speak into the lives of others.”
The Cordoviz family is indeed living evidence to this.
