Caleb’s Story

Here is a summary of the Brown’s story, recorded two weeks after Caleb’s accident:

The Brown family went on a camping trip to Fall Creek Falls on October 15th. Tim and Tiffany took two of their three sons on the trip (Colby, who at the time was age 4 and Caleb, age 2). They also had a 9 month old, Connor who stayed with family in Nashville. Tim and Tiffany were enjoying a beautiful day in the park with the boys and hiked to the bottom of Fall Creek Falls. They made it to the bottom of the falls when a large rock came down from above. Tiffany was holding Caleb when the rock struck him in the back of the head. They rushed Caleb back up the trail to get help. Caleb was airlifted to TC Thompson’s Children’s Hospital in Chattanooga, TN where he remained for nearly a month in critical condition. From there Caleb went to stay another month at Scottish Rite Children’s Rehabilitation Center in Atlanta, GA. This blog records the events as they happened as well as the most recent updates on Caleb’s recovery. The Browns returned home December 7th, 2010 two months after they set out for their family’s first camping trip.

Today Caleb has recently completed Kindergarten and will soon be going to first grade, along with all the other kids his age. He has relearned how to walk, talk, eat, play and be a kid again. He remains about 10-15 months behind developmentally, but continues to make great progress every day. He continues with his daily therapies and still loves Thomas the Train and building his own choo choo tracks.

Tim is an author, blogger, and speaker and well as the owner of Four Streams Marketing, an online web marketing and design firm. Tim continues to preach and teach where God leads him. Tiffany is a stay-at-home of 4, and is currently homeschooling their oldest son, Colby who is in third grade. Tiffany also teaches preschool to their other two children Connor, and Chloe.

The Brown family began writing a book about their experience in February 2011, and today the book, entitled God Still Speaks: The Miracle at Fall Creek Falls, is now being considered for publishing. Please check back to this website for more details about the publishing of the book.

Due to the numerous requests for updates on Caleb’s recovery, the Brown family set up a Facebook page and makes regular posts daily on how Caleb is doing. You can join Caleb’s Facebook page by clicking here.

There is a fund that has been set up to help the Brown family with medical expenses and other related costs. If you are interested in helping the Brown family you may do so by clicking here:
