In April 2008, 26-year- old Katherine suffered a massive brain stem stroke. Not expected to live or recover, she instead relearned to eat, speak and walk. In spite of double vision, deafness, facial paralysis and diminished fine motor skills, she thrives as a wife and mom. Now she and Jay, a Montgomery native, celebrate the beauty of life and parenthood as well as the pain, and share their story through the full-time ministry of Hope Heals.
Your support of this event will impact children throughout Central Alabama.
AGAPE of Central Alabama is a ministry that helps children by connecting hearts through foster care and adoption. There are so many children in our area that need a loving home, and Agape sets out to match children with nurturing Christian families.

Agape is still receiving notes from some of the children and parents saying what a difference Michael’s words have made in their life
