Miracles in Milledgeville and Macon

As a young adult with a disability, there are activities and endeavors that I continually wish my limitations would allow me to do. Growing up, my twin sister was an athlete, playing literally every sport known to man, giving her all to everything she did on and off the courts and fields. While I loved watching her play and cheering her teams to victory, there was always part of me that wished I could participate. I loved having my nails painted and wearing the pink dresses, but what child wouldn't enjoy the thrill of swinging the bat to hit a ball out of the park?
