HE is 6 today...

and to think that 6 years ago, we didn't think this child was going to live...he was soooo ill and there were many days and even weeks where he had nothing to hang on to...but he DID...Here we are, SIX years later and we are truly truly blessed that he is still here.  Still here, working hard each and every waking moment, trying even when people don't think he is, showing us what JOY really is, still a work in progress.  As Stacy Julian has said in a different format, we didn't get to this point in his life by ourselves; we know that nothing worth doing should ever be done alone.  We thank all of those people who have held our hands, held his hand (all his  teachers and therapists, we owe you EVERYTHING), watched us cry, watched us laugh, seen the first steps, the progress in therapy, the speech progression, and all the baby steps in between.  I thank all my girlfriends who keep lifting me up in prayer and encouragement when I start feeling down about how far he still has to go **** We are truly filled with thanks and look forward to all the things that Thing 2 is gonna keep doing for the next 12 months and beyond !!! He is LOVED ****THANK YOU TEAM, we couldn't've done it without you!!
