13 Months

Dear Grayson,

Well, this letter is a week and a half late, but we’ve been a little busy! We celebrated your birthday, and then a week later, we strapped ourselves in for one crazy roller coaster ride! You wouldn’t know by looking at your sweet little grin, but your 13th month has been tough. Tough on you. Tough on your Mommy and Daddy. Tough on everyone who has been praying for you and supporting our family.

But we are making it. We have some answers, and are slowly gathering and piecing together the pieces of the puzzle that is your diagnosis.

And you. You are amazing. I am so overwhelmed with love for you and love every minute of being your mommy. And I’m so glad that you are feeling better and are able to have food in your body to help you grow. I’m sorry that right now you have that annoying tube in your nose and are attached to a pole all day. It won’t last forever.

Someday when you can understand I will tell you about all the people who love you. I don’t think we will ever know the number of people who have said prayers for you, offered to do anything and everything to help, and encouraged your mommy and daddy. We are so blessed.

I love you Grayson Robert. Here’s to a 14th month filled with love, hugs, giggles, yummy food and lots of weight gain!

    I am praying for you and your sweet boy. He is just too cute for words. I'm glad you're adjusting to being back at home, though not the way you had hoped. You are an amazing mama and I am so encouraged by your courage, strength and love for Greyson. Blessings!! Sarina

    I can't believe what a difference a few days makes! He looks so great! I give you guys a lot of credit for sticking it out during all of those months of confusion and frustration. You've done an amazing job of parenting your beautiful son, and I am so happy that things have started to improve. YAY!
