Brunette Prince

Many of my days lately, and even some sleepless tossing and turning nights my thoughts are filled with decisions we have to make for my four year old son Wesley. At first glance Wesley is like any other child. His marvelous blue eyes are filled to the brim with happiness. It takes a closer look and some background knowledge to understands this little boys hurtles. Wesley who has walked with a limp every since the day he took his first steps. His right foot which has very little movement, and leg with a under developed muscles. The disability causes some discomfort, and little things like standing on tip toes, running, buying a pair of shoes, or even walking for extended periods of time proves to be difficult, and sometimes impossible. His case is rare and often leaves Doctors scratching their heads to options, and treatments. Which to be honest makes me nervous, and a little on edge as we prepare for the next surgery, and venture to Georgia for one more final opinion. Today as I watch my none stop Wesley bounce from one daily distraction to another. I watch his eagerness to run fast, and his non complaining attitude. I realize how much braver he is than his Mommy. He chooses to be happy, and loving despite the discomforts, and challenges that face him on a daily basis. I could learn so very much from this marvelous, blue eyed, love giving, full of life, four year old trooper. He brings such joy to this family!!! Such a precious gift bestowed upon me the little brunette prince. I will continue to hold to hope, and pray for the day he crosses his final hurtle!

But if we hope for what is still unseen by us, we wait for it with patience and composure. Romans 8: 25
