Flashback Friday – This Week 4 Years Ago

I am linking up with the very lovely Jenny of Mummy Mishaps again for her Flashback Friday Linky, head over and check it out.

This week 4 years ago is the week that changed my life forever.

This week 4 years ago I woke one day as a Mummy to a little boy but by the end of the day I went to sleep as a Mummy to a Son with complex Medical Needs.

I never thought this would happen, but it did, would I change it if I could ? Hell Yes! But do I wish it never happened – No! Because no matter what I have the most amazing son in the world.

This little boy…..

We in that week never found out what the full extent of Grayson’s needs and disabilities would be in the future, but I will never forget on 26th April 2009 being shown to an office to be shown a picture of Grayson’s brain and the large amount of damage that was on it. I will never forget calling my family and telling them. But when I walked back to Grayson’s room where we spent the next few weeks living I knew it would be ok and this picture I think tells you why.

  • Oh Kara, I really don’t know how you stay as strong as you do sometimes. Grayson is luck to have you. And he really is the most gorgeous little boy, such a cute baby. x

  • Gorgeous photos. Those smiles make everything and anything possible.

  • This made me cry… he’s so beautiful! I wish things were different for him but I just know that with you and Ash as his Mummy & daddy he will have the best life that you can possibly give him! xxxx

    Oh my goodness he’s just so beautiful. I don’t know how I would cope getting news like that, he just has the best mummy. He looks like such a gorgeous and wonderful little boy and I’m sure that he brings you such happiness and love despite his disability.

  • such a beautiful baby – awww he has the biggest eyes and the most gorgeous smile Kara. I believe everything happens for a reason, and as you say if only things could have been different that day in terms of his condition and needs BUT just looking at him then and now of course you wouldn’t, couldn’t change anything about him because he is just amazing and beautiful and yours. i think you are one amazing mummy who never complains about things and i admire you so much.
