Dylan got a letter from Santa….
Giving his sister some love!!!
So, originally we went to Kenndy Kreiger for the helmet sizing back in June and now it is December and still no helmet. Remember they sent the wrong one the first time and told me it would only be two weeks to send the replacement. So I called the Numotion yesterday the place that Kenndy Krieger does all their contracts with. They told me they are waiting for a certain person to get back to them with the measurements of the helmet, but shouldn’t they already have it.
This guy right here so handsome!!!!
Dylan received a certificate for participating in the science fair.
Everybody that knows Dylan knows how he likes to rip stuff up. There was not one rip in the paper. The other day he came walking in the living room with this paper and laid on the floor with it and kept hitting on it. So, I’m thinking that is his way of letting me know he wants to go to breakfast with Santa.
Finally heard news about his helmet. Over the past three weeks, I’ve been calling about his helmet and nobody has returned my call. So finally I call today about it and they tell me the lady is not in the office today how convenient. So I asked the lady on the phone how hard is for somebody to call me back. She has avoided me far too long now I have left five messages for her over the past three weeks. It’s funny how you mention supervisor and you get a call right saying they talked to the company today and they will be mailing it right to the house. I told the lady on the phone now that wasn’t so hard now was it, I also said thanks so much and have a great day.
Look at that smile!! He so handsome!!!
Just a follow up! I said that we have had to deal with all sorts of people that has really made our journey that much more difficult. I closed the blog talking about a little boy that came up to greet Dylan and just shared his love and acceptance of Dylan, just the way he is. That little boys’ mom should be very proud of him. She is raising him to love and not hate, to accept people with differences! Bravo to her. I also want to share an amazing and humbling event that just took place about two hours ago. This helps to restore my faith in mankind even further. As Terri, Dylan, and I were leaving Wal-Mart, I was approached by a gentleman with two young daughters. I thought he wanted my cart, which I would have gladly given to him, but that’s not what he wanted. He says to me, “Hey, I want to let you know, I understand how difficult it is raising a child with special needs. I have a daughter who is special needs herself. I want to give you this.” He said handing me something from his hand. I actually wasn’t sure what he was giving me, but, then he said, “Please have dinner on me tonight.” I thanked him as he and his two beautiful little girls walked towards the entrance of the store. I stood there in amazement for several seconds, before I looked at the bill in my hand. I was both humbled and overwhelmed. In my hand was a brand new 100.00 dollar bill. I felt the tears well up in my eyes. I continued to stand there dumbfounded for several minutes. I slowly put the bill in my pocket and got in the car. Terri noticed right away that something was wrong, so she asked me. A few hot tears began to streak down my face. I was at a loss for words. I finally said, “Give me a minute. I regained my composure and fished the 100 dollar bill from my pocket and placed it in her hand. She looked at me shocked. “Where did that come from?” she asked. I told her what had just happened and the tears began to well up inside me once again. She said that she noticed the man looking at us as we were putting Dylan into the car. We snapped a picture of his truck! This is why I continue to hold out hope. It is these type of things that restores my faith. This man was truly an Angel in every sense of the word. He didn’t know me, or my situation, but he felt compelled to help us. That is the real meaning of tithing. That is what God truly expects from us. To reach out to others to give anonymously expecting nothing back in return. There is no doubt that this man will be blessed tenfold. For the stranger that gave of himself freely, I want to say thank you and may God bless you abundantly.
