This story is about the journey of faith that my husband and I encountered after he was injured in an accident that left him paralyzed from the chin down and completely ventilator dependent. He survived when it was against the odds. We spent the next five years sharing our story at churches of every denomination along with other venues. Included are the miracles and stories we witnessed on our journey. My prayer in sharing this story is that it serves two purposes. One, that it helps others who are traveling the tough road of paralysis and two, that it would strengthen the faith of anyone who takes the time to read it. I see God in everything that happens in my life and I know he has a plan for every wrinkle and smile that I find in each day. I pray others find that through our story.Cindy Gittemeier Blackmore resides in Cairo, MO in the home where she raised three children with her husband, Darwin.

Cindy continues to be active in her community. She is an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan and hangs out at home with her dog, Buck (named after St. Louis Cardinal Hall of Fame announcer Jack Buck). Her many interests include volunteering for her church, photography, fishing, working with teens, reading, antique hunting and golfing.
