This boy calls me Mom and today is his birthday.
Truth be told, he saved my life seven years ago and honestly, he still does.
I work hard not to put that kind of pressure on him, but my love for him is at times all that helps me put one foot in front of the other.
For him, I will do anything.
For a child to be born into such circumstances, a mere five weeks after Danny’s accident, he knows nothing different. It’s hard for us to keep in the forefront of our minds that this is all he’s known; there is no comparison for him. He just needs his parents to love him, provide for him and guide him.
I pray that being raised in our home will help him be more compassionate to those with differences. I pray that the Lord would protect him-mind, body and soul. I pray that any scheme of the enemy against him or our family, would not prosper. I pray for kindness, wisdom and integrity. Ultimately, I pray that he grows in the Lord and becomes a man after God’s own heart.
