Day 3: Eli

Meet Eli! He is 11 months old.

Biggest challenge Ds has brought to his family's life: The numerous health challenges and hospital stays he has faced in his short life.

Coolest thing about Eli: He smiles through any adversity. And his smile is contagious! 

I would like to tell you a little more about this sweet boy. He is a true warrior! He has already conquered open heart surgery and beat infantile spasms. He must now undergo another surgery tomorrow morning. He will have a cranial vault reconstruction because he has craniosynostosis. I ask that you say a prayer for sweet Eli and his family. I know he will rock this just like every other thing he has had to face in his first year of life. If you would like to follow along Eli's journey please go on over to his mommy's blog.


  1. Seriously cute kid!! Praying his surgery goes well.

    1. Isn't he though?! He's doing amazing!

  2. His smile is certainly contagious. I love this little guy and I'm so happy he's doing so well.
