Meet Bryant, a very special little baby. Special because he was born on my birthday, special because he belongs to a family I grew up being a part of, and special because he is a fighter. You may notice a large scar down his tiny chest. He was born with a multitude of very serious heart defects. He had his first open heart surgery at just a couple days old with many more already planned.
He belongs to Brian and Amanda. Brian grew up down the street from me. I was at his house almost as much a mine. It's safe to say I have a love-hate relationship with Brian. He was like the mean older brother I never asked for ;) He threw a frog at me once when I was riding my bike and I swear I'm still traumatized. However, I loved his mom and sister an awful lot so it kept me coming back for more.
I know he and Amanda will be a great source of strength and comfort for little
Bryant and his long journey ahead.
