Why Our Hope Flies – Grace and the Martin Family

Grace’s family paces themselves and takes life day by day. “We are never sure what the day will hold for us. In spite of these issues, Grace is a loving child who has a heart of gold and a great sense of humor. While there is currently no cure and little treatment for mitochondrial disease, our family has discovered the wonderful possibilities of having a child with special needs. Grace has opened doors for us, and through her we have met some of the most incredible people. Her therapists, teachers and doctors love and support her and have built great relationships with our family. We want for Grace peace, contentment and to feel the best that she can feel.”
