I want to share something important with you… please take a moment and read this post!
This very special little man has already been through some pretty tough times and has a long road ahead of him yet. I feel blessed for having met and had the priviledge of capturing this darling little man. You might recognize this gorgeous couple from a maternity session we did earlier in 2011. Little Nixon could use some extra love and support and maybe you can help. Nixon was born with a heart condition for which he is still waiting to grow a little more. After Nixon recovers from his heart surgery, he will begin his wait for his new thymus. Nixon has pretty much no immunity. When a thymus is found for Nixon, he and his mom and dad will make the trek to Duke, North Carolina, the only place in North America to do this specialized surgery of a thymus transplant. His mom and dad have been told to expect to move down there for 6 months after his surgery for his long road to recovery. When you hear this, doesn’ t it make you want to find a way to just fix this problem? I wish it were that simple. If little Nixon’s situation touches your heart and you want to help, I know Shantal and Cole would appreciate your prayers very much. They are going to need it over the next year. But if you would like to take it a step further, they have set up a fund to help pay the unknown expenses that will be incurred from their move down to North Carolina for at least 6 months. Please join me in supporting them in prayer and financially if you are able. This link will take you to the facebook page the family has set up to raise funds. Please consider it and spread the message… share their page on your FB page…. let’s all try to do what we can to help this amazing family!
