We think we should start at the beginning. I was born just over 8 years ago in Las Vegas Nevada. My birth parents Derek and Lisa were totally surprised by my EB. They came to the decision that they could not give me the care that I needed and deserved so they allowed me to be adopted by my parents Brad and KaDee.
I call Brad and KaDee dad and mom. They are the perfect parents for me. My Dad is so much fun and works so hard so that I can have insurance and so that my mom can stay home with me every day. My mom is strong and smart and knows how to take the best care of me. She is like a pretend doctor.
By being adopted I got to have tons of family members who love me and support me. I have aunts and uncles who only want the best for me. I have grandmas and grandpas who love me and pray for me daily. Best of all I have TONS of cousins! Lots of my cousins live close, I even have one cousin in my school class. I am surrounded by a huge family all of the time. I can feel their prayers for me.
My sister is adopted too, she is my best friend. I even know her birth family and I call her grandma and grandpa my grandma and grandpa. They let me swim their pool, because I can't swim in a public pool because of my EB.
I know that Derek and Lisa were an important part of Gods plan for me, but I am so thankful that because of EB I get to live the life I have in Utah with my family.
