This picture is from the beginning of our journey.  Our little guy was still walking, babbling and meeting all his milestones.  We thought that having tubes put in his ears would correct his falling down when he walked.  We didn't have any idea that we would be facing such challenges from then on. 

As I look at this picture, I think back to a conference I had with my Heart's elementary teacher.  I told this teacher, " I don't know what is in the future for my daughter, but I know that she has an old soul and she will do greatness."  At the time, I didn't know that the greatness would be the journey we are on now.  I only knew that she was destined for a remarkable life.  Thank goodness she is a strong, tenacious person.  No weak person would be able to smile, while putting one foot in front of another during the daily challenges brought on by Leukodystrophy .  I applaud all that My Heart is, for she has taken all the loving lessons taught her and fortified herself for the obstacles in her path.
