Her parents, Chris & Valerie Wheeler, have been married 17 years. Valerie is able to stay home; managing all of Rebekah’s needs along with family life. There are many tasks, such as therapy sessions, supply orders, medicine management, government paperwork, tube feedings, bathing, specialist and dental appointments. In addition, Valerie home schools their older daughter Kayla.
Big sister is Bekah’s favorite and always gets the best giggles! Chris is a devoted husband and father and is the sole financial provider for the family. He jumps right in as soon as he gets home from work, making sure all tasks for the day have been completed. Bekah can be found weekly at the help desk at West Ridge Church where those dazzling brown eyes and big grin help mom and dad greet guests. Bekah participates in the special needs ministry programs at church, and the Wheelers lead a community group for families who are on the journey of special needs with a loved one.
