How far we've come . . .

I cannot explain the feelings that I get when I look back at these pictures of Gavin during his first days . . . an opening in his back, an IV in his head, and cords and tubes surrounding a helpless little body surrounded by a confused and devastated family. But, with consistent therapy and a lot of prayers, his legs have relaxed and he is sitting up on his own. This feat has a new meaning to us as every milestone is both a challenge and a miracle.
I just recently printed out these pictures and placed them in Gavin's room. The are not there to remind us of those sad and tragic times . . . they are there to give us hope . . . as proof of how far we've come.

  1. What a little trooper he is! Since when is he sitting up by himself? I was not aware of this milestone missy.
