The New York Times writes – “8 P.M. (EPIX) THE CURRENT (2014) The surfer Bethany Hamilton, who was 13 when she lost an arm in a shark attack; the Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin; and the wrestler Anthony Robles are featured in this documentary, directed by Kurt Miller, about the healing power of water sports.

Welcome to the POA family, Gracelyn and Addilyn!

 

This week we have had the pleasure of meeting Gracelyn (4) and Addilyn (2), both congenital BK’s adopted from China. Big sister Gracelyn has been in the U.S. for two years and this will be her second prosthesis, so she is guiding little sister Addilyn, who arrived just two months ago, through the process. When Addilyn took her first few steps, Gracelyn jumped up and down exclaiming, “she’s walking!….I can’t believe it!” Precious moments. Thanks to MeiMei and mom Kelley for introducing us to this wonderful family!
