Ji’Ezra’s Story

“He has brought so much life to our family; and a greater knowledge and understanding to the true purpose of life. He has been the reason why our family has pulled together more closer now than ever before.”

Ji’Era Seymore, Trisomy 13, Syracuse, NY, 6/1/2003

God saw fit to bless us with a miracle. Ji’Ezra was born on June 1, 2003 to a large family. He has brought so much life to our family; and a greater knowledge and understanding to the true purpose of life. He has been the reason why our family has pulled together more closer now than ever before. As a family he has taught us to pray more and build a stronger foundation on our Creator. He was diagnosed with full Trisomy 13; we were told he would not live past a week. He stayed in the hospital for 9 days; due to severe jaundice, we insisted he come home if he was going to die. That is how we were told. Ji’Ezra is eight years old now; we have had our ups and downs, in and outs at the hospital. But, through it all he is still hear; and because of this blessing we are stronger individuals. I thank God for all that he has done in our lives; and while He has Ji’Ezra here, we will love him and cherish the time we have together.
