How would a pair of our jeans make a difference in her life”? “Yes, clothes are difficult at this stage at age 13 years old”.
Tash writes: “We adopted Landen at birth from Greenville SC. He has Spina Bifida, hydrocephalus, hip dysplasia and aspiration disorder. He has no feeling from the waist down.

It is very hard to find a pair of jeans that actually fit around his waist that are not 10 times too long. Typically in the winter months, he lives in sweatpants ’cause they are stretchy and fit lengthwise.
