Kilah’s Story

Kilah is a beautiful 3 year old that was violently injured on May 16th while in the care of a family member. Originally, her injuries were not considered something she could survive, but with the coming together of friends and family, their prayers are being answered.

Kilah has a very long way to go, and there are many things the family will need to help with her continued care and therapy. That’s where we come in! We are friends – old and new – that have come together to support this cause!

We hope you will join us as we support Kilah Davenport, her mother Kirbi Davenport and her grandparents Leslie and Brian Davenport.

    On May 16TH while Kilah’s mother Kirbi Davenport was working while her step-father Joshua Houser who was supposed to take care of Kilah and supposedly loved her allegedly beat this child so severely she suffered a broken collar bone. A fractured skull and 90 percent of her brain damaged. He was charged with a class C felony of child abuse inflicting serious bodily harm. The sentencing guidelines do not even come close to fit the crime as the punishment is only 44-92 months in state prison meaning serving only a couple years on a plea deal or good behavior, as this child’s life has permanently been Altered.She will undergo a life time of therapy. She will have to learn to walk,talk and eat again. We are raising money to help the grandparents renovate their home to accommodate kilahs special needs such as wheel chair accessible in all rooms and a room for physical therapy.This is the home Kilah and her mother Kirby will remain at.We are fighting for “”Kilahs Law” that will raise the sentencing guidelines for anyone who causes a Permanent Debilitating physical injury to a child. We feel that such a violent crime against a child should be in line with a child predictor being 25 years to Life in Prison.

    Hi Everyone,

    Would the family be available to come tell their story to a community college Health class? I am sure you would gain support for your cause and reach others. Please email me @ lktucker01@gmail.com. Thank you and you have my continued thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Leigh Tucker
