The Clanton family has been through a lot the past couple of years. Two of their children were in a stroller by the Erie Canal last year and the stoller went into the canal, an 18 foot drop. Their father jumped in after them, and while the little boy Samuel was okay after the fall, Selah wasn't. After severe brain trauma, the family requires 24-hour nursing care for Selah to help get through the day. The family has 5 children, 3 of them adopted and 4 of them blind. Now, their health insurance is threating to not help them pay for 24-hour nursing help.
I am so glad I got the opportunity to spend a long afternoon with this family. I can't wait to make the trip back up to Zephyrhills and spend more time with them again soon.
