 Happy birthday Will! I can't believe you are 6.  Poor sick kiddo. Hopefully we have turned the corner and are on the mend with some rest and fluids.

About the Boys

Jack is a thriving 3rd grader who spent most of his first 2 1/2 years of life being tube fed as a result of GI complications. He loves riding his bike, being a cub scout, reading books and playing soccer and basketball.

 

Will is a busy five year old who keeps us on our toes despite his vision impairment, ocular albinism. His favorite activities are riding his bike, playing cars, playing with his brother and charming everyone he meets.
