Courtney Hotard Roth, whose incredible faith has inspired the community of Ponchatoula, is being honored by St. Joseph School.
Both accepted God's will when her child, Tripp, was born with epidermolysis bullosa, a genetic disorder that affects 1 in 50,000 people. Tripp was missing skin on much of his body and what skin he did have was fragile and would easily erode. He was missing a protein that binds one layer of skin to another. Roth gave up a nursing career to care for her child, who died in January 2012 at the age of 2 years and 8 months.
"To me, my Catholic education was more than just religion class. It was an environment of discipline, love and learning to respect others. My Catholic education not only taught me how to love God, but how to love myself and others as well. It has made me the person I am today. And for that, I am very grateful," said the 2000 graduate of St. Joseph.
School officials said Rother has blessed the community, church parish, school and the world with a visible example of how to graciously accept God's will. Her incredible faith has united the entire community in prayer, compassion and hope to form a bond of love around one of God's precious angels.
Roth is the author of a popular blog title "EB"ing a Mommy. She won first place in a Reader's Digest "Your Life" Contest and received a 2011 Moms Who Are Changing the World Award for Babble.com and was named one of ABC's Personal Heroes of 2011. She received the 2012 Spirit Award for DebRA, a fund raising group for EB, and spoke at the annual DebRA event in New York.
