MY BOYS + THE WORLD

13 March 2017

These past few days, the whole world, as I would like to think so, has fallen in love with my Thomas and William.



I shared that photo of them on the couch because that was pure love and I wanted to immortalise that moment for my personal collection and don't you think the world (through social media) needs a little dose of pure love here and there?

Since then, I've received countless messages of love and compassion for my Thomas and admiration for my William.

The primary nature of the messages is sympathy and comes close second is gratitude. People tell me how thankful they are for my boys, for sharing Thomas' story, for teaching them what's important in life and for reminding them to love more and complain less.

I told in an interview today that one of the reasons why I started sharing Thomas' journey was to get prayers from friends and family. To gain my prayer warriors to help me pray for him. And to know now that the whole world is praying for Thomas (or thinking about him) is just beyond amazing.

My boys have changed my life and it seems like they are also changing others in their own little ways. I am so damn proud of them.

To everyone who sent us heartwarming messages, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I draw strength from from all of it, especially when you say my family is not alone. It just blows my mind.

Thank you!

I hope you are all having a lovely day and I'll speak to you soon!

Edit: We are hoping that Thomas' story will raise more awareness on Malignant Rhabdoid Tumours. The disease is so rare there's not enough research about it to help find a cure. 

Also, I'm trying to get Ed Sheeran's attention. We couldn't think of a song for Thomas and all I can think of is Ed Sheeran and if he is willing to write a melody or a song for Baby Thomas. Here's hoping social media works.

  12. I pray in the Name of Jesus that Thomas will experience the Healing virtue of God and he will be a Miracle. I pray that he survives and defies the odds. So shall it be. May the Love of God engulf him this morning and always. May the peace of God surround you as you care for him.

    Amen

  13. I bawl my eyes out daily for your family and have never felt more pain for someone I have never met or love for children who are not my own. Your resilience, strength, and courage in the face of this unimaginable ordeal is remarkable. Remember, life is just a resting stop on the road to heaven and we will all end up there eventually. Much love.

  15. Hola la entiendo y comparto su dolor yo también tuve un bebé arcoiris después de tener tres abortos y cuando por fin llegó mi bebé se enfermo gravemente quedando cuádripléjico y utilizando un respirador esa bendición me duro cuatro años y fueron los mejores de mi vida ya han pasado 5 mesese de su partida y aunque me duele mucho se que el esta mejor con dios y ya no siente dolor y esta feliz porque allá puede hacer lo que nunca hizo cuando estaba con vida y que algún día nos volveremos a encontrar lo único que puedo decirle es que le de mucho amor a bebé hasta el final de sus días y pidale a dios que se haga su voluntad y no la suya y el la va a escuchar que dios bendiga a su familia y les de mucha fortaleza
