Wyndham is 5!















Five years ago Wyndham came into our lives as a tiny peanut- weighing just 4 lbs 6 oz...but she was healthy and we were a happy family of 5. Had we known she would have critical health concerns and major trauma in the next few years {including 3 ambulance rides and 2 medical helicopter airides} - it would have sapped the happiness we felt that day. Instead, we have taken her life one day at a time, steps forward and back- for the past 5 years. We have learned about what truly matters in this world, and how attitude can make or break a person in their weakest moments. Wyndham has been a fighter at every turn in her life. She has taught everyone around her that challenges are a part of life and are opportunities to become a better person. Her zest and joy in the little things is contagious. Her abilities outshine her limitations. We have no idea how much this little girl can overcome- but we know she will always give her best. As her Mom, I am fortunate to be a part of that journey- and I can't wait to see what her future holds. This is a sweet day for our family...celebrating the life of our little Wyndham!
