SEASON'S GREETINGS!!  THANK YOU TO EACH OF YOU WHO HAVE SENT US WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT AND SUPPORT AFTER VIEWING OUR DOCUMENTARY, "PARALYZED AND PREGNANT: 4 YEARS LATER" ON TLC OR DISCOVERY HEALTH CHANNEL!  PIERCE AND I ARE BEYOND FLATTERED AND HONORED TO RECEIVE SUCH INCREDIBLE, LOVING SUPPORT FROM PEOPLE WE DON’T EVEN KNOW.  WE HAVE RECEIVED THOUSANDS OF LETTERS FILLED WITH LOVE, PRAISE, AND SUGGESTIONS OF HOW I MIGHT MAKE MY PASSING OUT SPELLS GO AWAY.  WE ARE TRULY HUMBLED AND CANNOT PUT INTO WORDS HOW SINCERELY GRATEFUL WE ARE TO HEAR THE WONDERFUL THINGS YOU ALL ARE SAYING.  I WISH THERE WERE ENOUGH HOURS IN A DAY TO RESPOND TO EACH OF YOUR LETTERS PERSONALLY. ALTHOUGH I WISH I COULD, IT WOULD BE A FULL-TIME JOB, BUT  PIERCE IS TOO DEMANDING OF MY TIME AT HIS AGE, AND IT IS JUST NOT POSSIBLE.  IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A PERSONAL RESPONSE, PLEASE KNOW THAT WE STILL APPRECIATE YOU TAKING THE TIME TO LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!   ALL OF YOUR LETTERS WILL BE GOING INTO A SCRAPBOOK FOR PIERCE TO HAVE WHEN HE IS OLDER.  

BEST WISHES FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS,

 

~Michelle & Pierce

Hello! I am Michelle Carston, and the handsome, young man on my lap is my 5-year old son, Pierce. 

If you watched our documentary, "Paralyzed and Pregnant" on TLC, please let us know what you thought of it.  Pierce really enjoys it when I read him viewer mail from nice people from all around the world.  He also loves to watch our show, which we refer to as, "The Pierce Show!"

This site is here because I realized that viewers of the original show had questions they wanted to ask us, but couldn't find us.  As you browse this site, you'll find links to join our Facebook fan page, see what we're doing on MySpace, and a section where you can drop us a note.  Please feel free to let us know what you're thinking, and feel free to ask any questions which were not addressed on the shows.)


Prior to my pregnancy, I used to bowl on a league with other wheelchair users, and we all used a bowling unit which attached to the front of our wheelchairs.  Most of my peers had no use of their arms, and were incredible bowlers, some even beating my high score of 181!  As you saw in our follow-up show, unfortunately, I was not able to sit my chair upright enough to allow the bowling ball to glide down the unit on its own, and Pierce wound up having to push it down the ramp with his hands.  By not being able to sit upright enough, I failed to properly demonstrate how this incredible device works, and I didn’t serve it the justice it deserves!  If you know of anyone who uses a wheelchair, and would enjoy participating in a fun, family sport, please direct them to the link below, where they can view a demonstration video, and see how it should be done properly.  This bowling unit really changed my life for the better!

~Michelle
