"My name is Tonia Pearson mother of Javeon Turner. My child suffers from Spastic
Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, Mild Case of Epilepsy, Auditory Neuropathy (a form of deafness)
amongst other delays. Like many mothers of children with disabilities, I felt lost. I didn't have all the proper resources or all the knowledge needed to care for my child properly. My son won a lawsuit that was improperly handled and his trust didn't care about his needs. I met a wonderful woman on Facebook through a support group called Moms of Children with Disabilities. Her name is Libra Hicks the founder of Our Children's Stories. Before even meeting with Hicks in person she had already pointed me in all the right directions. She gave me the resources and tools I needed to fight for my son. She gave me encouragement and let me know it's going to be alright. Due to her help my son has a great trustee. Majority of my son needs have been met. Even though Mrs.Hicks has a child of her own with a disability as well as a typical child and family of her own she always finds a way to help other families in need. I am forever grateful for all the help she has given me and my son".
"Words truly are not enough to express my gratitude and appreciation for our children's story organization!
Libra Hicks, founder of "Our Children's Story" has been a godsend to me and my family. She works tirelessly for families who have family members with special needs and they focus on the health and well-being of the entire family. "Our Children's Story" is one of the few organizations where I have witnessed the good work they do firsthand. With the support they receive, I've witnessed Miss Hicks personally delivers diapers and other Goods to my mother to help with my sister's care even after a long challenging day of carrying for her own family which includes a son with special needs. Mrs.Hick's foundation has also supplied us with valuable information as it pertains to assistance with special needs family members and Libra makes it her personal mission to boost the confidence of these mothers by offering them a "glamorous life" makeover! She is truly phenomenal and her spectacular Foundation "Our Children's Story" is so worthy of support and recognition beyond measure. If I could sum up my experience with "Our Children's Story" organization; I'd have to say "It is a special organization filled with determination, which offers hope to special families filled with love."
"I turned to Libra for help! I didn’t know what to do or what to think. What I did know is that Libra had a wealth of knowledge regarding special needs children. If she didn’t have the answer she definitely knew someone who would be able to help. With Libra’s help, I was able to not only receive assistance for my child through “Babies Can’t Wait” but I was also able to get her the therapy she needed for her to be able to express herself without the frustration. I’ve learned from Libra to never take NO or your child CAN’T do something as acceptable. She pushed me and taught me the lingo, such as IEP, how to look at it, how to read it, how to get things added to it. Without her help and guidance there is no telling my daughter would be today.
It’s been a long journey and it’s still coming along, but as of present day, my baby is talking more than ever. She expresses herself fully. She is currently at College Park Elementary, with special educators that she sees weekly, but she is able to be in general education classes. Per her scores, she is on a level of a second-semester 3rd grader and she is only a second-semester 2nd grader. All of this and the work I continue to do all started with a push in the right direction from Libra and Our Children’s Story. My child has a story. A story that I’m able to share with others due to the overwhelming help of Mrs. Libra Hicks! I THANK YOU…I THANK YOU… I THANK YOU… you will always be someone special to me and my daughter Jaiden"!
"I can't thank Our Children's Story organization enough for supporting families with special needs. I have followed Ms. Hicks and was very moved by her commitment to her family and greatly to the needs of the special need families out here. I soon had a lot of questions about some things I was going thru with my son and felt lost and confused. I reached out and there Mrs.Hicks was with an answer plus some lol. I also was inquiring about Getting help for Thanksgiving and again this beautiful lady delivered. My family because of Our Children's Story didn't miss a beat. I am blessed to have this organization rooting for me and many other families. This is what we need more of in the community. Thanks again Libra Hicks and Our Children's Story for just being there and being informative".
"Running a holiday sale or weekly special? I definitely promote it here to get customers excited about getting a sweet deal. "As an only parent, I am to supply all the needs, love & comfort for my six-year-old baby girl. And I do. But sometimes it's a bit overwhelming with all the money that is going out at any given time. That's what leads me to write this to, Our Children's Story. At a time when I didn't have a diaper in my hand, "Our Children Story" donated $20 towards a box of diapers for my special daughter who has cerebral palsy, severe hearing loss, sensory issues & other challenges. I just want everyone to know how grateful I am. Thank you, Our Children Story"!!!!
