Boys Love Football

We have been following the medical adventures of Baby Christopher.

He is now almost 2 years old and during that short span of time has had a heart transplant, been in hospitals and on dialysis most of his life, and received a renal transplant from his dad a few weeks ago.

Now, he has finally returned home and is beginning to be a real boy.

As you can see from this picture, he is a typical real boy because "Boys Love Football".

His dad, as you recall, is a sports writer and amongst other things covers College Football. 

So, I guess you could say that Christopher has many reasons to love sports and football.

But that is a topic for another time.

The reason for today's DIT entry is that his mom has posted a very poignant article on his Caring Bridge Website.

In it she discusses some of what God has taught her through this experience, which some could correctly call an 'ordeal'.

It is one thing to hear a sermon on the topics she discusses.  But it is totally different and more profound to hear a first hand report of what God has personally taught someone as they endured trials and tests.

So, with that by way of introduction, I think you will find this mother's perspective on the events of the past 2 years very interesting.  HERE'S THE LINK
