In 3 days it will be Isaac's birthday! Even though he probably thinks everyday is his birthday because we sing the "Happy Birthday" song, it is a reason to celebrate. However the date of April 13th is a memory that is hard to forget. Our life as we knew it had changed forever. Due to distress, Isaac had to be delivered prematurely via C-section. He was much smaller than we imagined at 2 1/2 pounds! 

Shortly after birth, we were told one diagnoses after another. We found out he had a very rare chromosome disorder. Doctors told us many speculations of how long he would live, if he would be capable of anything or even be responsive to us. He spent 4 months in the NICU and calculated with all of the admits he spent 3 months in the PICU. That's 7 months in the hospital the first year of his life!

Isaac has taught us over the years the true meaning of joy and finding contentment in any circumstance. His quality of life is something he defines. Everyday he wakes up with multiple disabilities and health issues. Everyday he wakes up smiling, laughing and enjoying LIFE. 

Happy Birthday Isaac!
