Jacob and Elijah Shaddox are brothers. They live with their mom, Mary, who is the writer of this blog. Jacob is 19 and is now four inches taller than his mom! He also has ADHD and gorgeous red hair. He is a freshman at a technical college studying computer maintenance. Elijah is 15! He is in 9th grade and he is not in ROTC at his high school. He also had red hair, but it is lighter and not as thick as his brother's hair. He is hearing impaired(auditory neuropathy) and wears two cochlear implants. He also has tourette syndrome, ADHD, OCD and anxiety! Mary just started her 25th year as a teacher of the deaf. She is also in her last semester of graduate school to be a diagnostician! She will graduate in December of 2015!

Glasses OFF!

Elijah has gotten into the wrestling mood the last few nights. It is something fun we can do! When we wrestle he tells me "Glasses OFF". This is something he learned from his big brother. Whenever Jacob wanted to wrestle, when he was just a small thing, he would walk up to his dad or me and say "Glasses off" and we knew it was time to wrestle. I can't believe how much time has passed since I last wrestled Jacob. He is JUST too big and has been too big for a long time. I am glad that Elijah is still young enough that he wants to wrestle....however he is getting almost TOO big for me to wrestle! I need to enjoy it while I can!

  1. She really was a fighter. She wore her heart on her sleeve and generously allowed us to follow her journey. I hope her impact is felt far beyond our province and that many more sign up to be organ donors. I am so sorry BUT we all know now that she bearthes so much easier now!
