Here is what his Dad, my son Jeremy had to say:
One year ago today the doctors told me that there is no movement but then you moved your hand. The doctors said you may never learn to eat, but then you ate on the first try. the doctors said you would be in the ICU for months but you were only there for 9 days. Beating all odds. You are my inspiration to never give up and to always try my hardest. You have a very special place in my heart.
Happy 1st birthday Son!!! Love you to the moon and back!!!
We were so blessed to live in a country where healthcare and food can help are babies, or at least give them a chance...
Fast forward to yesterday afternoon as I was sipping my cool water and driving in my car to do some shopping... thinking about how wonderful life was at that moment...
...and then on the radio... this Podcast from NPR
The story tells of Doctors With Out Borders in Sudan, at a ward for malnourished kids.. speaking to the nurses, the doctors, the parents. the struggle of a young girl, age 3...
I cried.... I drove, and cried, and prayed.. thanking God for what I have, praying for those who don't have....I spoke to Chris... we decided that along with the plastic and fluff of a first birthday... others needed ..
So we donated, for Wyatt, for our abundance, for others... Please listen to the podcast and consider giving. because we have... because others don't, not just American poor.... but refugee poor..
We thank you..
Mamas in the Sudan thank you..
To God be the Glory..
