How is it possible that the little man will be 6 in a few days??
As a small handful of people know, the month of April is filled with mixed emotions every year. I start to relive the earlier days all over again, when we first got thrown into this crazy whirlwind. There was one scary diagnoses after another and being in survival mode for 4 months in the NICU.
Sometimes I imagine what Isaac would be like if he was a typically developing child at 6 years old. Would he be in little league? Would he be learning how to read? How would our lives be different? Surely it would be easier.
Of course I would give anything to magically help him walk or not get sick easily, but I wouldn't change who "he" is. His sweet soul has changed our lives for the better. You seriously can't help but melt around his sweetness. He has taught several how to love and focus on what truly matters in life. I wouldn't be who I am today without having a special needs child. I wouldn't change that for the world!
This weekend we are taking him to a farm to see the animals instead of a party. Pictures to follow of course!
