Happy 4th birthday to my hero... (Image Heavy)

Since this weekend was so incredibly busy for us, I am just getting some extra time to post this blog...

For some parents, 4 yrs may seem like a lot of time for some, to others it may seem like the years flew by in a blur. For us, it seems like a lifetime ago this angel came into our lives. Ethan has been through so much in the last 4 yrs, and will continue to battle and push through medical obstacles as the yrs go on. As his parents; it has been quite the journey, but given the opportunity to do it all over again, I would.....just the same.

Happy birthday to my love, my hero, my son...

Our family of 3, waiting for the arrival of Ethan
