Broken Bones, Intact Spirit
Anicee Lamoreaux suffers osteogenisis imperfecta or “brittle bone” disease. In her short life of 12 years old, she has suffered at least 100 breaks. She is the adopted child of parents who have the same condition.
Anicee’s parents met at Children’s Hospital years ago, when they were children reconnecting and marrying years later. Anicee was adopted from the South American country of Belize.
After having rods implanted in her tiny arms to straighten them, she is now excitedly able to paint straight lines which fills her with delight.
The condition Anicee suffers has in no way dampened her spirit, both for life, and penchant for painting creations that burst with both color, and texture. Recently, Anicee’s paintings fetched 100 thousand dollars at a charity auction for the Children’s Hospital. This is the hospital that has helped both her, and her parents in immeasurable ways. She kept none of the money for herself, giving it all away.
We can all learn a “heart lesson” from this delightful blessing of a child.
I just want to make them happy
