Why Maggie’s Month? A Story You Can’t Miss

In Uncategorized on November 13, 2011 at 4:53 pm

I have to confess my controdictive life as Maggie’s mom. Sometimes I feel so strong and sure about my decisions for her, like a full-blooded lioness protecting my young. And sometimes I wonder if I’m making huge mistakes, if my intuitions and decisions are just simple craziness that will result, at best, in “less” for my daughter, and at worst, her suffering, now or later.

Wheelchair? Floor? Walker? Braces? Public school? Home school? Medications? Surgery? Traditional therapy? Alternative therapy? Stomach tube? Pediasure? Mama’s magical formula? Special education? Extraordinary education? Communication tool? Now? Never? Wait? Later? Can I do it? Do I, will I know?

My questions are not so different than your questions for your own children. We all worry that we’ll make the right choice, that our inevitable mistakes won’t be too detrimental to their future. That ultimately, in all our weaknesses, we’ll be enough to give them what they need to make their own beautiful life.

Doug and I have been thinking about our mission, specifically as Maggie’s parents. What exactly is our guide as we choose for her, until she can choose for herself? Here is our ultimate hope for her.

“To provide Maggie with the fullness of opportunity and ability to have meaningful and fulfilling, independent engagement with the world; to support her unique and specific mission to unfold; to instil in her heart that she is a perfect creation and beloved by God, and that she can trust in Christ, perfectly, in every circumstance.”

This brings us to “Why Maggie’s Month?”

Maggie’s Month is all about providing Maggie with opportunity and ability.

We are often asked, rather than focusing on traditional physical and occupational therapy, why we are working so hard for Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments and the Anat Baniel Method?

There are very few guarantees in this life, but our parent intuition is leading us to give great focus to these two therapies. We wanted to share with you, in part, why.

Here are a few stories about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), and the Anat Baniel Method that are so inspiring. We want to engage you in sharing our hopes for Maggie’s future. Watch . . . and just imagine.

Maggie's Thrill in Sitting

ANAT BANIEL METHOD VIDEO (7 min. well worth it)

HBOT VIDEO 1 (3.5 minutes)

HBOT VIDEO 2 (45 seconds)

Thank you for allowing us to share our intimate hearts and hopes. Thank you for joining with us to make another persons life blossom with possibility. Thank you for intimately touching our dear Maggie’s life.

However, the real take-away message here isn’t just about Maggie. It’s that as parents we all wear a mantle, a mantle that gives us a claim and right to intuition, inspiration, even miracles. As we put that mantle on, and as we become clearer about our intentions as parents, we can be sure that, despite our weaknesses (which are many) resources will appear, opportunities will be presented, doors will be opened, miracles will be accomplished, and even more importantly, personal transformation will occur so that we really can do this amazing thing called parenting. You and I . . . we can do this.

In Uncategorized on November 2, 2011 at 10:17 pm

Would you like to share Maggie’s Month with your coworkers, but you’re not sure how? Give a Sick Day–Give a Better Life is a new Maggie’s Month campaign designed for the work place.

It’s a really simple idea. Here’s how it works.

You and your coworkers donate (1) one sick day each, then your employer donates the money to Maggie’s Month. Together you can make a HUGE impact on the success of Maggie’s Month.

Here’s a Give a Sick Day Campaign Flyer that you can print and share with your employer and coworkers.

We’d love to hear how Give a Sick Day–Give a Better Life does at your work!
