Guess what we celebrated today

I just wanted to share something we celebrated today. I get that some people might not get the significance of this but it’s pretty significant to us.

I’ll briefly explain why we find this a reason to celebrate. ☺

Once upon a time, Gavin used to really enjoy drawing pictures. I would always take pictures of them to share here on the blog. He used to get a huge kick out of reading everyone’s supportive comments and encouraging words.

As Gavin’s daily struggles began to interfere with more and more of his life, he slowly began to stop drawing or sketching.

It’s been forever since he sat down and drew a picture of anything.

Out of nowhere this morning he asked me for paper because he wanted to draw a picture. I wasn’t getting my hopes up because it’s been a really long time and I was sad to see him stop drawing.

Anyway, about an hour or so after asking for paper, he came down the stairs and proudly displayed a new masterpiece. ☺

I’m super stoked to be able to share this with you folks.
