Sweet Zach Needs a Family of His Own

Sweet Zach is almost 5 and a half years old.

He does have a special need that is "private".  I would imagine he would need a surgery or two but that he will live a "normal" life.

He sounds like a sweet and helpful little boy.

Maybe Zach is your sweet boy?

Contact me or Myriam and we would be happy to share more about this darling little guy.

Sunday was a Hello Kitty kinda day.

My girl LOVES her some hello kitty

and I LOVE me some Naomi

So we ventured out for a short little walk

I might have had my camera with me.  

We had a mini accident and my girl and hello kitty were separated for a moment.

Happy and together again

 HOPE everyone has a HAPPY Monday

My boys heart

My baby boy was born 9 years ago.  He was the best Christmas Eve present a family could ask for.  But the news we got Christmas day put these parents into a deep dark spiral.

He had something wrong with his heart, low set ears, webbed neck, coloboma, low tone and on and on and on.  Finally they said Down Syndrome.  We were scared. 

Really SCARED!

The next 6 weeks were hard.  It wasn't Downs but what was it??

Finally at 8 weeks we learned our boy has Noonan's Syndrome.

In the late 60's Dr.  Noonan a cardiologist was seeing all these kids with similar features and some kind of heart issue.

The first two years were HARD.  Would he roll over, sit, stand, walk, eat on his own, have severe learning disabilities, talk . . .  He mastered everything with lots of therapy just a bit later than most.

Our boy has pulmonary valve stenosis along with a few other minor heart anomalies.  At first we went to the cardiologist every month then 6 months then annually then every other year. 

He never needed surgery though the thought was it was a matter of time until he would need a balloon procedure done. 

Something AMAZING happened this year.  God healed our boys heart!  I just about fell over when the doctor said "Somehow????? his heart is functioning like a normal heart"  WHAT!!!!   YEP!

You see kids with Noonan's syndrome have a heart issue FOREVER  They just do.

God is Good!! 

 Gotta think all the jump roping this boy does had a little something to do with it.

We heard this WONDERFUL news a few weeks back.  Getting to walk this journey called life with my boy is beyond a blessing.  Words just don't do it justice.

Thanking God for introducing us to the world of Special needs kids.  I wouldn't be the same without him.
