Why I do what I do

I always say Alex is a typical four year old. He loves running, playing, wrestling and anything sports related. But one day someone corrected me and said, “well, I don’t mean to sound rude, but I hope that he is not normal!?!” I didn’t take it as a derogatory statement as I knew exactly what this friend was saying. Every day Alex struggles to breath, has to eat a very special diet and bath in bleach baths because of his asthma, allergies and eczema. As much as my husband and I try to make his life “normal” we know deep down that a somewhat normal life would mean success.

This blog is dedicated to Alex and all the parents out there looking for ways to make their child “normal.”

    you and jason are such good parents. I believe God has a special plan for our Alex, and gives him the strength that most adults would not have. Give him kisses for me and tell him I’ll be seeing him at Wal-Mart!!LOL
