Dillon's Journey

Dillon is a little boy who will turn 3 in about a month. (Yes, for those of you who also got my email, I got ahead of myself by a month). I know his grandma from an internet group I have been on since college, and have followed Dillon's story since his birth.

He suffered brain damage at birth and has several disabilities as a result. His parents have worked really hard to help him. They are hoping to take him to China for stem cell treatments using umbilical cord cells in hopes that it will help his functioning (specifically mentioned were reduction in seizures and improvement in vision). Please pray for this sweet little boy and his family. Lift them up to God that He will provide and that He will keep them safe as they prepare for their journey abroad. Please, if you are able, help them financially.

Looking at Dillon and his brother JayDonn who is coming up on his 2nd birthday (yes, they're really close in age), I can't help but think of my own Bubby and Bubba. Bubby is just a few months younger than Dillon, which makes me hold Dillon even closer in my heart. He is a reminder of how God allows our best laid plans to change in an instant, but that if we trust in Him, He will use it for His good.
