Libra J. Hicks was born to Jane and Rodney Smith in February of 1981 in College Park, Georgia. Like her father, Libra had a strong love for music. Singing was her thing until she became pregnant at the age of 24yrs old with her oldest son, Anthony Jr. aka “Moo”.
Libra had an easy pregnancy, no complications. At midnight on December 15th 2005 she went into labor. She labored for 19hrs which led to an emergency C-section. The complicated delivery led to lack of oxygen to Anthony’s brain. Due to the complications from the delivery, Moo was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and a host of other challenges.
In 2010, Libra founded “Our Children’s Story” in honor of her son Anthony Jr. Her organization assists families who care for love ones with (dis)Abilities. Libra can relate to all mothers’ who are raising children or caring for an adult with (dis)Abilities. No matter the diagnosis, the feelings are the same across the board.
In 2017 her youngest son Lyric was diagnosed with Autism and since, she’s added another reason for why she’s building an organization that will last years beyond years.
