My Story

April 2012 Patrick is a happy, energetic three year old. While there was a brief period of time after is original surgery where he didn't communicate, he has since made up for it. He loves Mickey and Minnie mouse, Buzz Lightyear, Monsters, Inc., Blues Clues and Elmo. He is very much mommy's little boy and he is adored by his grandparents and his aunts and uncles. April 2014 Patrick is now 5 years old and we are living in Pennsylvania. Mommy and Patrick moved to PA in May 2012 after we went to DisneyWorld through the Make*a*Wish Foundation. Patrick is getting SO big!! He goes to preschool 3 days a week and is still getting Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy. He has come SO far!! Patrick is still in love with Minnie Mouse, loves to sing and put on shows, and is just an absolute joy. He is on track to start Kindergarten in the fall.... when did my little boy get SO BIG?!?!?!
