2008...


Well, let's just say we are THANKFUL it is a NEW YEAR! 2007 wasn't the best year for us. We had a lot of ups and downs emotionally, spiritually, physically, financially. However, we can honestly say we would do it ALL over again. Why? Because Gavin is still with us and that's all that really matters. When I look back at what Adam and I went through the last year it doesn't really compare to what Gavin experienced. Within the last year in a half our son has had two MAJOR open heart surgeries, a stroke, spells, several heart caths, EEGS, MRI, CT, ER visits, hospital stays, physical therapy, speech therapy, doctor appts. and so on... We are amazed with his strength, his endurance. And just to think he has to go through a lot of this again and again through out his life. Looking at Gavin makes all the other "issues" in life seem so small. With that being said, I pray that 2008 brings another year with Gavin! May you all be blessed in the New Year!

He IS a gift...and you guys are always in our prayers. Lil' Mr. Gavin puts every little thing in life into perspective. He is such a strong sweetie that without even knowing it has already changed this world for alot of people just thru your family's strength and stories. 2008 is going to be a great one :)

It is amazing what the times of trouble look like in retrospect. At the end it is the blessings that are most evident. Gavin is a blessed little boy and will bring you great joy in 2008. We continue to pray for you all. Go Gavin Go!!
