Ady’s Barracks – Gabe (09/10/2019 - 08/28/2019)

Meet Gabe Aaron Weeks. He is a firecracker who will be 3 in October and has kept us on our toes since the day he arrived. He never meets a stranger and you will never find him without a huge grin (with dimples) on his face. Before Gabe was born my husband and I were already parents to 2 incredibly sweet and easy going little girls. We were thrilled to learn we were having a baby boy and felt like... Read more

Ady’s Barracks – Isla (03/12/2019 - 06/30/2019)

Meet Isla Grace Craft. She is 3 years old with a beautiful smile that melts your heart. Let me tell you how her story began. Lee and I joined Grace Life Baptist Church in Bessemer, AL in March of 2014 . We wanted to get in to missions so our Pastor suggested something domestic. We ended up in Springdale, Arkansas the following May to witness and share the Gospel with a large community of Marshallese people. Our Senior Pastor, along... Read more

Ady’s Paws – Ace (02/10/2019 - 05/15/2019)

Ace entered the world 3 days after his expected arrival date, weighing in at 6lbs 5oz. Ace was hitting all major milestones earlier than expected. He walked at 10 1/2 months; knew his letters and the sounds they made by 16 months, before he could really form full sentences. He read fluently before he turned 3 years old and his math skills were beyond anything we ever imagined possible. So as parents with a 3 year old who knew multiplication... Read more

Ady’s Fins 2019 (10/17/2018 - 05/15/2019)

This is the branch the Schuberts are... Read more

Ady’s Paws-Samantha (06/21/2018 - 11/24/2018)

Samantha was born only one week early but she was a tiny baby at just 4lbs 10.5oz.  She spent one week in the NICU and then got to come home.  Even tho she was tiny, she was hitting all of her milestones for quite some time. At one point though Samantha began to regress.  She stopped babbling and it was hard to get her to stay focused.   She began to have strange behaviors like barking and crawling around people when...

Ady’s Barracks-Nate (04/01/2018 - 04/09/2018)

Nate is only 10 years old and suffers with shockingly low self-esteem and depression. As his parents, we watch him struggle to fit in socially and see him get overwhelmed with periods of rage and sadness when he feels misunderstood and left out.  Meltdowns are common place and stressful for our entire family. Nate has been in therapy for years learning different methods to break the cycle of rage/depression/low self-esteem.  Even though there has been improvement there is still a long way to... Read more

Ady’s Barracks-Caleb (08/15/2017 - 11/29/2017)

Let me introduce you to Caleb. Caleb is considered to be non-verbal because he only mimics everything someone else says. He is always on the go (even at night). He was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2. He fills our days singing, dancing, and clapping to the 80’s hairband music. He also loves hot wheel cars (lining them up by colors and saying the make and model of each and every one). He rocks, spins, flaps his hands,... Read more

Ady’s Paws-Brylee and Madison (04/19/2017 - 12/21/2017)

Brylee is a beautiful 4 ½ year old little girl. She was diagnosed with nonverbal autism spectrum disorder when she was 2 years old.  Brylee was a happy, healthy baby who hit all her developmental milestones on time up until she was a year old.  By the time Brylee was 18 months old, her mom knew there was something wrong.  During Brylee’s 2 year checkup, it was decided that she needed to be evaluated for autism.  As her parents, going...
