This last Sunday, I had the pleasure of meeting Journey and his family at a nearby Birthplace Forest. Journey was born early at 33 weeks, with a rare blood disorder called Diamond Blackfan Anemia (DBA) and needing major heart surgery soon after he was born. He is the sweetest and most mellow little guy! I put a few of the pictures up because I really wanted to share his story, and well, he is darn cute too! The little bear in the picture of Journey and his mom is a Build A Bear built by the whole family and filled with hearts especially for him. Honestly, how could that story not melt your heart, right?
You can read about more about Journey and how he is doing at the family’s website here
