On October 16, 2009 Eli and Isaac Salley were born. Both boys are healthy and happy, and Claudia is one of only 10 known cases in the US of a paralyzed woman successfully giving birth to twins. “They challenge me every day to make me the best mom I can be,” says Claudia. “There are challenges: for example I won’t be able to run after them if they get hurt. Or if one of them is too low I can’t physically pick him up, but I have someone here who can do that for me.”
Levi would have been three years older than his little brothers. “It’s hard to believe the changes of the last three years,” says Claudia. “I think about Levi every day and wonder what he’d be doing right now.”
Claudia plans to return to school and become a nurse practitioner. “Right now I’m enjoying every second with these beautiful boys. They’re miracles, and I know they are. Every day I get to spend with my twins is a blessing,” she says. OMG, we’re going to start crying all over again! Claudia is such an inspiration to us all!!
