We spend between 12-14 hours a day together. I love spending time with you, playing with you, and being your mom. But, do we really need to hang out at night time too? Was it really necessary for you to get up 4 times last night? I mean, I like to see you and all, but not at three in the morning. You will be two and HALF in a couple of days. I like to sleep, perhaps as your mom I can teach you the joys of sleeping. It's really fun, actually. So, do you think you could work on it? Try to stay in your bed and sleep until it's time to get up in the morning. That'd be great, thanks! Love, Mom
This is a story of overcoming the odds, putting trust in God, and the miracle of prayer. Our son, Elijah, was born in August of 2007. As a result of the oxygen deprivation that occured during his birth he spent his first three (agonizing) weeks in the hospital. When he was seven days old, we were told that Elijah had "severe brain damage" on both sides of his brain. At that moment we entered Elijahland and we've been here ever since. We're learning to live with the diagnoses Elijah has started to accumulate, but mostly we're grateful that God chose us to be his parents. It is truly a privilege to live in Elijahland with our handsome boy. Thanks for visiting.
