#PRAYFORMAYBERRY



Morning friends. I wanted to post a mini update today and ask for a prayer request. Things have been intense the last couple weeks. After months of searching and nothing but being turned down, Christian has finally been accepted to a rehab facility in Florida. This is an amazing facility that wants to help him and has a rehab plan already lined out for him. One thing, the state now has to approve it, the ball is in their court. Our family, people helping our family and the state have called hundreds of rehab facilities all over the country, only to be turned down. We'd been told we better decide if he needs to go to another nursing home or home. Neither are an option for us. This boy has made so many improvements over the last month or 2, he needs rehab so bad. He deserves this! He deserves the best shot at getting his teenage life back. This is not going to happen without intense rehab.

Also, over the last week there has now been 3 arrests of the people involved in the case. The truth has finally come out, and guess what? It's exactly what our family knew from day one. Way too many people had talked. It was only a matter of time before it all came out, and it did. You can read about what happened here here and here on a local radio stations blog. There are more stories on that blog about the arrests, all over the news as well. While it's nice justice is being served and these people have to now answer, like I said before, it doesn't help Christian right now. It sure hurts reading the accounts of that night, knowing that they let him lay there dying while they got their stories straight. Knowing how different things could be if they'd just done what normal people do after an accident. This is something I've had to work very hard to forgive. Some days are easier than others. 

There is more going on, but right now I'm begging you all to be praying for my brother and praying that he WILL end up at this rehab facility. Please be praying for our family. Everything we're going through right now is about more than one can take some days. 

I'm probably going to be pretty absent over the next week or two. I've tried to stay on top of things but sitting down blog planning and typing out posts about makeup is something I've not been able to push myself to do lately.

In about 11 days it will be 1 year since the accident. I've been thinking about this for weeks and thinking about how I really want to sit down and write about the last year. I don't even know where to start. 

I can tell you 1 thing. Our family has had constant faith since day 1. This boy survived for a reason and God has a major plan for him. Although I'm not 100% sure what it is yet, I think I'm getting a good idea. God has this, all of it. Just please keep my sweet, goofy, loving baby brother in your thoughts and prayers.

  19. Saying so many prayers!! Take all the time you need, totally understandable! I can't even begin to imagine what you've all been through. Glad the truth is finally coming to the surface and hoping things just get better from here on out. What a blessing it is for him to be accepted into this facility! Are you and Dustin still planning on moving to Florida?

  20. I have been following and reading all of the updates on FB. I'm so thankful that justice is being served. I know it doesn't heal Christian, but it's still one HUGE step in the right direction. It's crazy to me that the state has to approve - clearly I don't know how that all works, and it doesn't matter, but just praying and believing that he will get accepted and get the care and rehab that he needs and deserves!

  24. All of my prayers, sweet girl. I can't imagine how you guys feel--reading the stories about how they just left him there makes me SICK! It hurts my heart to know people like that even exist. I hope they are punished to the fullest extent. But like you said--that doesn't help Christian right now. All my prayers to your beautiful family for everything to work out in his favor <3
