Judy-Alexis is a beautiful, spunky 4-year-old girl living at Maria’s Big House of Hope. She can often be found rolling through the halls in her wheelchair greeting all of her friends—even calling their names to capture their attention.
In the mornings, Judy-Alexis goes to preschool where she enjoys reading books, coloring, painting, and watching fun videos to learn sign language. She always chooses to sit in the purple chair since that’s her favorite color, and if she’s picking out books to read, she’ll find all the books about elephants every time.
Judy-Alexis’ work and determination in physical therapy are remarkable. She uses her strong arms to practice climbing stairs and chairs. It’s not all hard work, though. Judy-Alexis loves the trampoline, and she giggles as she bounces up and down.
The rest of the time, Judy-Alexis spends her day playing with friends and nannies. She likes to pretend to be a doctor and give checkups to her friends, checking their hearts and temperature. One of her favorite games is to make everyone pretend to go to sleep, and then wake them. She is certainly full of fun and joy.
Judy-Alexis came into our care shortly after she was born with needs surrounding spina bifida and a nervous system condition. We have loved watching her grow and learn, and we can’t wait to see the big things God has planned for her. Our hope for Judy-Alexis is that she would be able to enter a loving family through adoption. Would you join us in praying for this?
