Today we went to visit a Dylan, little boy we’ve known for many years but never met in person. We got to meet his mom and brother Jordan too. It’s the first time Blake has been in the hospital to see a child since Ethan was sick. It’s the first time every (that he’d remember) for Chase. They jumped right in and played video games with him. I love how, in this picture, Chase grabbed his hand and how Blake put his arm around him. We got in he car and they asked a lot of questions about Dylan and Ethan. Tonight as I put Chase to bed he said “mom, I think Dylan is going to be okay. He’s not going to die like Ethan, his heart is is good.”
We give a lot of attention to our sick kids because we have to, but siblings, they are so tremendously impacted. It’s ever part of their lives, their thoughts, their hearts. We are just so blessed to be part of this community, to share in the lives and hearts of so many. It made my heart sing to see Dylan doing so well. He’s such a brave boy. His brother is so brave too.
