<3 Happy 10 month Birthday to Our Santi Baby <3

Just a little update on Santiago:

    I am very happy to say he turned 10 months old yesterday, Feb. 21, 2010. Woo Hoo...

We have been truly blessed with your Santi baby. He has had some setbacks and that's okay. He is now on oxygen full time in hopes that he will not have to work so hard to breathe on his own. We are hoping by having him on the O2 full time he will now use the strength he was using to breath to grow and learn. Santi has therapies 3 times a week, starting with Feeding on Wend. Developmental on Thurs. and Physical on Fridays. All though this may seem like a lot it is worth every bit. There is nothing like watching your child does things that you were told would never happen. A Santi play with toys says Dada... and is learning others. He has come such a long ways and has fought very hard to get where he is today. there's a poem that I found and it is a poem I look at every time I fell like the road is getting to rough, so I thought I would share it with all of you. I hope when and if you every fell like the road is getting to rough you look back at this poem like I do and know that everything will work out at the end.


Much Love <3

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you frown a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is strange with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst
That you must not quit.
