Hello, I'm Kaylee's mother. My daughter was involved in a tragic incident that has left her permantently blind. We have started a GoFundMe to rasie funds to get her a service dog. Like so many, she fell victim to the dangerous reality of methamphetamine. As we prepare for the long road to getting her situated in her new life we are asking for your help. The journey will no doubt require many things to allow her to live a full life. But If Kaylee's story can help just one person, something good can come of this tragedy in our family. We are truly grateful for all the prayers and help we've received thus far and ask that you give whatever you can and continue to pray for us. The sooner we can provide Kaylee with a service dog, the sooner we can help her get back on her feet. God Bless.

Kayees'Update - Wanted to give a quick update on Kaylee. I can't call her, as I have said. The rehab place has not called me either, even though I was told they would at least let me know she's doing okay. Anyways, I got a text from a woman that spoke at the rehab center the other day and it was such a wonderful surprise! After she spoke, she asked if anyone wanted to talk to her. She said Kaylee was the first one to talk to her. She had such wonderful things to say about Kaylee! I was so happy to hear from her. Kaylee gave her my phone number because the woman wants to continue to have communication with Kaylee when she's out of rehab. Also, I think it was Kaylee's way of letting me know she's okay! We have that thing between us where we know! So that was such a great relief! My husband still hasn't found a job yet. Pretty stressed about that. He goes for a welding test Tuesday and has put in several applications. Please continue to pray for that job or a descent job to pay the bills to come through. Also, please pray that Kaylee continues to strive and be a wonderful testimony to others. Thank you guys for all of your thoughts, prayers and just everything! My mind is so preoccupied all of the time, if I don't respond to you or your email, I am so sorry! It's actually that I can sometimes barely think at this point! I appreciate all of you guys and I do have to say I am so very proud to be Kaylee's Mom!

Kayees'Update - Some good news and bad....I got to talk to Kaylee last night and she sounded absolutely wonderful and excited! The people and the things she gets to do are so good. Her spirits were very high! I am so so thankful for that because it was a big worry for me! So I thank you guys for praying! Along with that, today my husband got laid off from work. This is so devastating to us right now. He's already got an application in somewhere else. Sometimes I feel like I'm so thankful I got through one thing.....then another one pops up! I please ask that you pray this other job comes through because as of right now, we have no income at all. I just am...no words! We need more prayers now than ever. I am sitting here just in complete shock! Thank you guys for everything and please please pray for my husband to get another job very quickly! Sincerely, thank you!

Kayees'Update - Kaylee just left for rehab for 28 days! She is excited about going but also somewhat uneasy because she can't see and is with unfamiliar people. This will be the very first time she has been with people she doesn't know and has to trust them. So this is a very major step for her. The drive is about 3 hours so I ask that if you guys could please pray for a safe trip for her and give her the comfort she needs to rest easy with these new people she will be with. Please pray that God protects her and keeps her safe and to make this a good experience for her and also for her to maybe help someone there! She is not allowed to make any phone calls and normally no one can call there but since she is blind the facility said they would call me and let me know how she's doing! This would be a lot easier on both of us if we could at least talk on the phone a little bit. But we can't! As they call me or I call them, I will update when I do! Thank you all so much for all of your prayers because it means more to me and Kaylee than you even know! John 16:33 - These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Kayees'Update - I wanted to update and thank all of you guys that have prayed and sent good thoughts about Kaylee's transportation to rehab! We got it! The South Carolina Commission For The Blind is transporting her there! I am so thankful for them! So, thank you guys so much for always praying for us! Kaylee is doing so awesome! She had more O and M (orientation and mobility) training this week and will also have it at rehab. I am in tears as I type this! I have been in some contact with Kaylee's 4th grade teacher! Today she was going through old files and sent me one of Kaylee's homework. I'm still crying. So emotional! I wanted to share with you guys. I am so blessed for Kaylee to be my daughter I cannot even explain! Thank you guys again James 1:17 - Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
