Andrew and Will

I want to "introduce" you guys to two very special little boys.

Meet Andrew - Andrew is one month old and has diastrophic dysplasia, like Maddy. When I saw his photos, I could see it right away - he reminds me so much of Maddy as a newborn. He just came home from hospital last week, but is still on the feeding tube.

Meet Will - well technically, you can't "meet" him yet as he is not yet born. He has some form of skeletal dysplasia (the broad category given to all kinds of skeletal issues) - possibly Osteogenesis Imperfecta (brittle bone disease). The doctors are expecting that his condition may be lethal - but there is still hope that it may not be so. He will be delivered by C-section (to reduce damage to his delicate skeleton) in about three weeks.

Both Andrew and Will's families are Christian. If you have a spare minute, please head over to their blogs, read their stories and offer a bit of support - or better yet, please pray for these two sweet little boys and their families.

  1. Thank you so much for introducing our sweet little boy, Will, to your friends. He's scheduled to be delivered on Wednesday (crazy how quickly time has gone by!) and we can use all the prayers we can get heading into his delivery. Your support and prayers mean the world!!!
