We made it to Philadelphia yesterday (Sat) and Axel will be having surgery tomorrow. I just don't know what to think. I love this boy so much and I really don't want him to be in any pain. I know the doctors and staff will take wonderful care of him but I just don't like the thought of him going to surgery.

I have had a nice long talk with Axel and I have told him that we are only doing this so he can live a nice long happy life without having to worry about any neck or spine problems. I only wish he understood what I was saying.

This little boy has entered my heart since the first time I saw him, and the moment we first met I knew he was perfect for us.In fact, he is sitting on my lap as I write this, Axel will look at me and say "I love you" then give me a kiss on my cheek. How wonderful is that. And think he has only been with us for 6 months.  He has fit in soooo well.

What I guess I'm asking for is prayers, my emotions are going everywhere. I know God will watch over Axel and he will soothe my heart.

  2. I'm praying for all 4 of you. For you, Leah and Angela to have the strength and peace that you need right now. For Axel's surgery to go great, and for Axel to be as comfortable as possible.

  3. Praying for peace in your heart because you are doing what you must do in handing Axel off to the surgeons tomorrow. Praying also for wisdom and sure hands for the surgeons, and compassionate care from the nursing staff.

  4. Hey! I just came across your stie, from another!

    I'm a dad and I blog about our little guy, Noah was well. We do a daily one minute video to show off his life.

    He was born with down syndrome, and we have been learning so much, so quick.
    So great to connect with another dad!
