The world lost an angel today. My dear friend, Carla's, sweet little boy is with Jesus tonight. I am just devastated for her and her family.
Carla and her husband adopted Henry from Ukraine, just a few months after I brought Victoria and Francesca home. He has only been home for about a year.
In Ukraine, he was diagnosed as having Arthrogryposis, like Victoria, which is how Carla and I started our friendship. After Henry was safely home in the United States, the doctors discovered that he didn't have Arthrogryposis, but Larson Syndrome. That's pretty shocking news to receive, that your baby has something totally different than what you are prepared for, but I remember how Carla always trusted in God. Instead of worrying (like me!), she told me how if Henry hadn't been mis-diagnosed with Athrogryposis, then he wouldn't have been able to be adopted.
Henry had a host of complications, including a dangerously curved spine and knee joints that were on backwards. He had alot of limitations, He couldn't sit up, but he could get into toys and mischief.
Henry has made such a huge impact on so many lives. He never let anything stop him. He found joy with the love of his family. Now he can run and play up in Heaven and watch over his family.
He brought happiness to so many. He spirit lives on forever in our hearts.
Please pray for Carla and her family during this difficult time.
