What I Have Learned Since Levi's Birth

Levi turned three this week, and I have been thinking back to the first week of his life. I remember my fears about how his diagnosis would be received by others. I felt like Wes & I would be fine with everything but wondered how others would feel being around him. I worried people would be uncomfortable spending time with our family because of Levi's differences. I am so grateful that my fears have not been the reality.
Trying to get him to eat was quite a struggle. I had to give him breast milk through a syringe after each nursing session to make sure he'd get enough.

Over the past three years, I have learned...
People aren't afraid of him.
People love him.

He doesn't make people uncomfortable.
He makes people happy.

He hasn't changed our lives in a bad way.
He has changed our lives for the better.
We love you. Levi!
