Please share your story:

On Dec 24, 2012 we were on vacation and noticed spots of missing hair on Destiny head.  We made a doctors appointment as soon as we got home, and at first the doctors diagnosed her with all kind of things. We tried all kinds of medicine but her hair just keep falling out. At this point she started wearing hats to cover it up. People would ask questions and and wonder what was going on. The doctors told us she has an autoimmune disease called Alopecia – this is when your immune system fights the hair follicles because they think they are dangerous. We are standing firm in Destiny’s healing and believe that she will be completely restored from this. But while we wait our girl shines in the glory of God and doesn’t let this move her.

On July 22, 2014 Destiny decided that she no longer wanted to wear hats.  She wanted to wear bows just like everyone else.

On July 27 Destiny’s eyebrows and eye lashes started growing back. We have stayed firm in believing God this whole time. We still believe that God will heal destiny and that she will grow a full head of hair someday soon.

A little about Destiny.

Destiny is a happy girl and always has been, she walks around with such joy and confidence. She is truly an inspiration. She never has a bad day and she never walks around embarrassed or sad. She has faith that her hair will come back and has asked us to buy her hair things and brushes. As her parents we buy them standing in faith with our strong beautiful girl.  She is truly one of a kind and hasn’t let this get her down.  She shines through it all and she makes it all look easy.

Every night her father prays this prayer with Destiny, “Jesus, I give you all the praise and I give you all the glory! One day, I’ll tell my story. For those that wait upon The Lord, He will renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings of eagles. They will walk and not grow weary, they will run and not grow faint. In Jesus name we pray…..Amen.”

Destiny loves balloons and we have used them as our hope sign. It’s a symbol of faith, hope and belief that soon her miracle will come.
