With all our family has gone through the last few years, I have collected a lot of information. 

I decided to build this site as a way of sharing our story and experience. I hope you find it helpful. This site is NO LONGER BEING UPDATED.

Hi! I'm Kalib. I was born extremely premature and have suffered numerous health problems.

I weighed 1 lb. 4 oz and was 12 inches long. I spent my first 6 months in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) of Methodist Hospital in Dallas, TX fighting for my life. I have a spinal cord injury at level T11 which makes my legs paralyzed. I have recently survived a bout with cancer. It was a Wilm's tumor and was taken out surgically. I also had 20 weeks of chemotherapy. I hated it. I have lots of health issues but I am also a normal boy in a lot of ways.

Kalib's feet print ACTUAL SIZE from birth certificate. The quarter is for size reference.

I LOVE Nintendo, Sega Genesis, and computer games. I also like to watch TV. Some favorites of mine are Digimon, Power Rangers, Dexter's Laboratory, & Magic School Bus. I love anything to do with dinosaurs, hot wheels and Star Wars. I love school, I just don't like school work. I like Back Street Boys and 'N Sync. I really want to go to Disney World some day.

I have a big brother (Matthew) and a little sister (Michaela) and we live with my mom (Shannon) and my dad (Aaron) in Lindale, TX. 

This site is dedicated to those who feel like life has thrown them some bad kinks and wonder how they will make it through. My answer to that would be "One day at a time" and if that seems too daunting "One minute at a time". I would like for this site to give hope and encouragement to those who read it.
