No More

No more falls.  No more hospitals.  No more cuts.  No more bruises. 

I'm grieving for my little son.

He's endured so much in his seven years. 

Yesterday he tripped going up our outside steps and fell face first onto our brick steps. 

Blood everywhere. 



I can't take it anymore.

I can't take watching my little son suffer one more injury.  I can't stand having to hold him down while doctors work on him.  It is beyond words hard to look him in the eyes knowing that it will happen again and again in his life. 

Sad.

  1. Oh, sweet boy. It seems that God is fashioning a soul of iron in beautiful Aaron. What amazing things He must have planned for him!
    I pray that God will keep Aaron's heart tender toward him and will provide balm for his Mom's tender heart.

  2. Oh, poor sweet Aaron :-( And your poor mothers' heart :-( How it must hurt you both, knowing that this will happen again and again to this sweet boy. I wish someone would make a vest for him of the same kind as the inflatable bicycle helmets (they're just a collar, until you crash, then you get an inflatable helmet covering your head!) !

  5. Poor, poor, sweet boy! Poor mommy, too! At least now he has a mommy to hold him when he falls and is not alone to endure the falls by himself. Praying for you all.

  6. Oh, my sweet Aaron! My heart hurts to see him like that as well. And I completely understand your heart Julia. It has been SO hard for me to watch my sweet children suffer again and again knowing how much they have already suffered in their lives. But, like Beth said, I have seen how the Lord strengthens their spirits through each of their trials and I know without doubt that He has amazing things planned for them. Hang in there mama (and if you ever need to talk, please know that I am ALWAYS here for you!).

  10. What a fellowship, what a joy divine,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms;
    What a blessedness, what a peace is mine,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms.
    Refrain:
    Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms;
    Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.
    Oh, how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms;
    Oh, how bright the path grows from day to day,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms.
    What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms?
    I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms.


    I'm sorry for poor Aaron's face and mommy's heart :(

  11. Julia. These little boys, they all get their bumps and bruises and boo boos. The difference with Aaron is, for the first 6 years of his life he didn't have a momma or daddy to kiss his hurt away. Now he does.

  14. Oh Ouch! So sorry Aaron. So glad you have a Mama to comfort you! I know it hurts her terribly to see you suffer though!

  15. He never had much chance to get hurt before... To play... To climb stairs without being marched along in the same line to the same nothing... It is hard I know... and the surgeries... But to me it is a sign of freedom! It is a double whammy... Not only do we have children that have physical or mental handicaps... But the emotional scars of abandonment and severe neglect. Now Aaron LIVES, Now Judd Lives...

  16. Please remember that no matter how hard it is to see him in pain here in your arms, it is sooooo much easier for Aaron to handle with mom's loving arms around him and his own family their to comfort him when he gets home. Praying for swift healing of Aaron's face and mom's heart!

  19. Even with all of those wounds on his face just look into those sweet beautiful blue eyes of his and you can see a different boy than the one you first met. He knows he is loved and that makes all those bumps and ouchies tolerable because of his family!
