Tomorrow our Brave Hero turns four. FOUR.
There was a time when the doctors believed he wouldn’t make it through the month. Luckily Reed and I didn’t get that memo and we continued to believe.
Our faith wasn’t perfect. It faltered. But even through the tears we continued to hope.
We’ve been blessed through the love and support of family and friends. Your prayers have strengthened us. In times of fear it has been these prayers that have lifted us up. Never could I deny the power of prayer. It is real. It is tangible. It is the stuff miracles are made of.
We have been blessed through the gifts and donations of others. Because of you we have been able to help fill gaps in our insurance and better provide for Parker’s needs.
We have been humbled by your faith in Parker. By your belief in his potential.
We have grand plans for Four.
Expanding Parker’s horizons beyond the four walls of our home.
We’re intensifying the whole focus on the homeschooling gig. I had to smile when Parker’s pre-school teacher that comes once a week told me that she was going to have to amend Parker’s IEP. Seems as though he flew through a year’s worth of goals in just a couple of months.
Yup. That’s our kid.
There are still lots of worry to face. The Pulmonary Hypertension. RSV season. Finances.
But tomorrow is the start of a grand adventure. Tomorrow starts four.
And we will continue to believe, and know that we have been blessed.
