Jingle Bell Family (2022)

Jingle Bell Family

Client Info: This 15-year-old boy (developmentally 6 years old) was born prematurely weighing 1 lb 5 oz. He was immediately care flighted to Methodist Hospital before being transferred to Children’s House of Baylor where his family spent 3 months receiving care for him and training to be able to meet his needs at home. He spent the first 6 months of his life in the hospital and is now big brother to two little sisters. In his early childhood, they relocated to North Texas be closer to his clinicians and therapies since he was spending a lot of time in the hospital. His parents are working hard to provide for their kids, but an extra hand from their community would make a world of difference to them. After having a hard Christmas last year, we want to make sure this year’s Christmas is unforgettable!
