Congrats! Pooch Hall’s Daughter With Cerebral Palsy Graduated!
Congratulations are in order for actor Pooch Hall, formerly of the hit show The Game, as he and his family watched his eldest daughter graduate high school this week.
Pooch’s eldest daughter, Djanai, has the developmental disability, Cerebral Palsy, that results in her being unable to walk or talk on her own and has constant seizures.
But that didn’t stop her. Nor did it stop Pooch from congratulating his baby girl all over social media.
“Yoooo… lemme just stress how proud we are of our oldest daughter,” stress Hall on Instagram. “Djanai for graduating class of #2016 … some Doctors didnt give her that long. But she did it… I’m so proud of her and love my family so much… Now heres a graduation pic that is something my wife @shortyrockstar and l wanted to share with yall. Being parents of a child born developmentally delayed with cerebral palsy we are in aww of her strength,happiness, beauty and focus… i dont want sympathy, i want each and every one of us to recognize we are blessed beyond words and we should count our blessings and live everyday as if it was our last. Allow God, happiness, faith and greatness guide us. Love my fam… and congrats to all the #2016 graduates able body handicapped and ppl in the the struggle…”
His wife Linda, followed up her husband with an equally beautiful message about their baby girl:
“Words can not begin to express how proud I am of my big girl…I can’t believe my angel has officially graduated from High School,” Linda said.
“She did amazing…she listened…she clapped…she cheered…not once did she pull off her cap. She knew…today was her day! Tears of joy streamed down my face as I watched Alma roll her across the grass. I remember the day they told me all the things you wouldn’t be able to do but look at you now…????a graduate.”
“It’s funny what people take for granted some times…the drop out rate is still crazy and it blows my mind. When I tell people Djanai is in high school people often seem shocked or surprised that she’s in school…like where else would she be? Locked in the basement?! Such an accomplish baby girl and I am so proud maybe even…
