1825 days

When Noah was diagnosed with hydranencephaly at 9 weeks old his paediatrician told us that his life expectancy wasn't good, and estimated that he would live for maybe 2-4 years. We have been so blessed to have been able to share another 1825 days with him. Today he turns 9!

It's so hard to believe that it has been 9 years. Nine years of hard times, good times, fun times, sad times and happy times. Nine years of loving the most amazing little man. Nine years of wondering why we got to be the parents of such a special little boy, but so grateful that we did.

We love you Noah!

  2. I am CRYING! I just LOVE that boy. I pray that you have many more with him too. Enjoy EVERY.MINUTE! So hard to be without my Ben...I long to see those beautiful eyes looking around the way Noah did at the end of the video. THANK YOU FOR SHARING THAT. I can't tell you how much I needed that today. Happy birthday to your sweet boy. Please squeeze him for me.

  3. Happy Birthday Noah <3
    Absolutely BEAUTIFUL slide-show Lisa. He's an adorable little spirit and it was definitely no accident that he was placed in your family. My favourite photo is the one of him close up in his green shirt. He looks so grown up and handsome. Oh, and my second favourite was the one with a certain Hawks player standing with him (damn....I already forget his name, but you know the one!!!).
    Happy Birthday again big man and I hope your mum and dad spoil you rotten. xxx

  13. When did you find time to do ALL that on Fri afternoon. Hmm my fav is the one with Kobe with his hand on Noah's leg in the car. They both look so content with each other, just their spirits communicating.
