SICKLE CELL AWARENESS, RAISING LITTLESSamantha GordonComment

As you may remember, Mckenzie has sickle cell anemia. The past couple of days have been rough, but Gods healing hand and favor is nothing short of amazing. Caring for a child with sickle cell anemia, by far is one of my most hardest jobs as a mommy. This particular job has given me the opportunity to gain more understanding, strengthen my faith, patience, and gratitude. It has also given me the courage to be a sickle cell advocate to share knowledge on the topic.
