I couldn't believe it this morning when I found out one of Elijah's friends is no longer with us. Brextin passed away yesterday, just a week shy of his third birthday. I'm kind of shocked and so very sad. I only had the pleasure of meeting Brextin once, but I'll never forget him. He and his family worked so hard and he had the best smile!
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.
