About Hemophilia...

Hemophilia is a rare genetic bleeding disorder in which the blood does not clot normally. Persons with hemophilia are missing or have a low level of a protein needed for normal blood clotting. About 18,000 people in the United States are known to have hemophilia. Hemophilia usually only occurs in males, except for rare exceptions. A person with severe hemophilia means that they have less than one percent clotting factor in their system.

Our son's wedding!

Last summer was an exciting time for our family when on August 22nd our son; Dwight Eugene Walker married Amanda Rose Huddleston. Dwight started going with Amanda Rose, a single mother who worked at Walgreens as a pharmacy technician the previous December.

As soon as Dwight met Case there was an instant connection for this fatherless little boy. This loveable active toddler, who looks just like his mother, quickly found a place in our hearts as well. To Case, Dwight is "daddy".

Everyone that sees Dwight and Amanda together thinks they make the perfect couple. When the preacher announced Mr. & Mrs. Dwight Walker the entire congregation stood and gave them a standing ovation as they walked down the aisle while a rainbow arched high overhead outside the church where their vows were said.

For Dwight his wedding day was a dream come true- something that he honestly doubted would ever come to pass having severe hemophilia and knowing that he would physically be unable to support a wife or family. On Amanda's end she prayed for a Christian husband, who would love her son. Amanda and Dwight's wedding was an answer to many prayers. Even though Dwight and Amanda face the challenge of turning a single parent home into a family and coping with a major disability they are a perfect match. While Amanda works fulltime and goes to nursing school, Dwight stays home as a housewife taking care of Case.
