I wish I would have known a year ago how much I would have loved his wide smile. I wish I would have believed the people around me that kept saying “He IS going to be PERFECT”. I wish I would have listened to them when they followed it with “Everything is going to be okay”, because it is.
A year ago I would have never believed it if you told me we were going to get through this first year. With all of the surgeries, appointments, and tube feedings Brody stayed smiling through it all.
