Here’s a little sunshine for your Monday…
In November, I shared the Sternhagen family’s journey through a sad and bewildering time as their infant son Blake was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a condition that could dramatically shorten a child’s life (full story here).
Well, this weekend, the Sternhagens had a big old bash to celebrate the incredible Blake’s SECOND birthday!
Here’s what Blake’s momma, Gwen, had to say about the day:
“Today we celebrate a sweet little boy’s 2nd birthday!! On a day we were told we would not see, we will sing ‘Happy Birthday’ a little louder, smile a little bigger, and feel even more blessed. Blake is a fighter, a warrior, and we are proud to call him our superhero. Thank you, God, for this day, and everyday. Thank you for providing us continued strength on our journey. Happy Birthday dear Blake, Happy Birthday!”
Wishing Blake many blessings in his third year of life and sending love to this brave and beautiful family!
