Standing Ovation

Jeremy, who was born with cerebral palsy and recently went under the knife so as to be able to walk, had the crowd cheer him on, with his family members unable to hide their Joy.

“My boy y’all. The graduation was too awesome. To see them give him a standing ovation brought all sorts of feelings. For a boy who was born at 6 months and could fit on the palm of my hand, to come this far by God’s grace? How can I have enough words to express my gratitude? Only God. Only God. Only God could do this. Gloooooory,” wrote Kathy Kiuna.
