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.
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.
