For anyone who has a special needs child they get it--the aching love and concern, the hard work and gratitude for tiny triumphs.You confront and acknowledge every little road block and mile mark on their way. They change everything profoundly.
As many of you know, Jack had another surgery recently. The picture above, is Jack right after coming out of the OR--poor kid! In his short life he has had many surgeries and spent too much time in hospitals, but he is doing so well! Gone are the days of him scooting around with his walker--he walks on his own and now he is hearing!! This surgery also repaired the rest of his palate.
He was such a trouper this whole month having a limited diet and the first few weeks when he had to wear braces on his arms.We are so grateful and looking forward to progress in his speech.
Jack has a sunny and funny personality.He is as silly and enthusiastic about life as SpongeBob Squarepants--who happens to be his idol. Being his mom has been one of the most incredible experiences. This kid exudes love and pluck. I want to be like Jack! (=
