Thank you Stephanie for opening your house and heart. I truly enjoyed capturing the incredible bond between mother and son. Not to mention I will forever smile thinking about how Bennett is such a flirt at only 6 years old. xoxo
Bennett’s Story told by his wonderful Mommy, Stephanie.
He has a smile that lights up the room and a wonderful personality. For a child that has never spoken a word, he sure has taught me what life is about…there was a reason I got pregnant with my little sweetie, he wanted ME to be his mom. And for that, I’m forever grateful.
Do you believe in miracles??? I do…Bennett is one of them, and I’m sure your asking why?? A little over 7years ago I became pregnant with him (beating the birth control pill). A few weeks later I became very ill and was hospitalized. After being in the hospital for 7days, I received test results that COMPLETELY changed my life. The answer I got knocked my socks off…Cytomegalovirus, and on a pregnant woman it’s very harmful to an unborn child. The virus attacks the fetus and causes lots of neurological damage. It was a very long pregnancy with lots of emotions that I had to encounter. Finally at 37weeks and by emergency c-section I delivered Bennett. When he let out his first cry, it was music to my ears. I honestly didn’t think I was ever going to hear that sound. Bennett is now 6 yrs old and has a lot of special needs although is the light of my life and I believe there is a reason he is here today.
