The Patrick-Rodriguez Family
When Beldon Patrick learned she was pregnant, she was euphoric. Beldon decided to name her daughter Daisy – a symbolic choice for a child whose pending arrival inspired so much hope.
But during a doctor’s visit in her second trimester, doctors informed Beldon that Daisy was suffering grave medical complications. They doubted she would survive delivery. Beldon feared for her daughter’s life.
Despite the doctors’ news, Daisy proved she was as resilient as the flower whose name she shared. She persevered.
Relieved to embrace Daisy and watch her take her first breaths, Beldon knew her daughter’s plight was far from over. Daisy would have to overcome more medical, physical challenges as she grew.
To ease Daisy’s struggles, the Patrick-Rodriguez family turned to Southwest Human Development’s ADAPT Shop for help.
