Christopher was born January 16, 2009. He was immediately sent to a Pediatric Hospital for his first heart surgery at 6 days old, he ended up on a breathing machine as he stopped breathing on his own, and remained in Critical Care for days. At 6 months old he had another heart surgery. He was diagnised with Joubert Syndrome, whihc is very rare. It has affected so much in his little body. Now at almost 5 years old he is in heart failure again, so we are awaiting another open heart surgery. He has had 9 surgeries so far including heart, stomach, eyes, feet, hands and others. He has a vast amount of medical issues that we address on a daily basis. Through all of this, he remains a beautiful smiling and giggly boy! He constantly has done therapy to help him progress. He still cannot talk, but can now make steps with assistance and play with some toys. Because of his medical and developmental issues I cannot work, as a single Mom I need to be home to care for him. He has faced so many challenges, but one I really want to help him with is the ability to talk. It breaks my heart to see him go through so much pain and obstacles, and not be able to tell me what it is that he feels, or call out to me when he needs me. I would like your help to raise funds for Speech Therapy to allow him to communicate his needs to me, to be able to hear him say “Mommy”, to be able to tell me when and where it hurts. Before this Angel came into my life, I never realized how much I took for granted. I can walk, talk, breathe, eat, sleep…he has issues in every area. I realize how blessed I am for my health, and I KNOW how Blessed I am to have my Beautiful Son Christopher in my life, to love, hug and hold him everyday. I am grateful for any help you can give! Thank you with all my heart.
