The Journey of a Sweet Little Boy and His Special Heart

Heart Family

This "heart world" as we call it, is a strange thing.  It brings complete strangers from completely different walks of life and different parts of the country together, and creates a bond that can't be explained.  You really feel sort of a kinship with families that know your struggles.  That have been in your shoes, and that just GET it. 
I wrote this post back in 2011 about our friends the Jackleys that we met here in Philadelphia three years ago.  Lots of time has passed, but we have stayed in touch.  They said they wanted to spend time with their "family" on Christmas.  We were lucky to be that "family."  They were so incredibly sweet and generous to spend their Christmas making ours a little brighter.  They spoiled Logan with more presents (he LOVES unwrapping gifts) and they brought us dinner that lasted us for 3 nights.

Now look at these boys.... they are our miracles. 

We loved the Christmas visit.  We thought that would be our only chance to see them, but with our crazy set back the day after Christmas earning us a few more days here we got a chance to see them again yesterday.
They were kind enough to open their home up to us.  It was so nice to be in a HOME.  Not a hospital, not a "hotel" room.  It is crazy how different a home can feel. 
Logan LOVED it.  He was in heaven and loved playing with friends (as much as he loves mom and dad's undivided attention I think we are getting old)!

Thank you Stacie, Tommy, Kaylin, and Kellen
