Those who are difficult to love (Baby Zee is HOME!)

Tuesday, December 9, 2014

I saw a quote on Facebook once and it stuck with me but for the life of me I can't find it now. I went ahead and made it look legit and pinteresty....heck maybe I said it in the first place. Who knows. It went something like this:

I wanted to give you all an update on Baby Zee, and I thought of this quote. I had planned to write about how kids "like him" can be difficult to love and then I was going to try to guilt you in to stepping up to the plate to help care for "the least of these". But here is the problem....

He is not difficult to love.

He is difficult to transport (oxygen tank, ventilator, pulse ox monitor, portable suction machine, emergency "go bag" and all his g tube stuff. Oh and a diaper bag....don't forget that part).

But he is so easy to love.

When he wakes up every morning, his eyes get wide and he studies my face for a second before his whole face (I swear he smiles with his WHOLE FACE) lights up in the biggest smile as if to say "It is you again! You are still here! You are taking care of me again today! I know you!"

Circumstances can be difficult when he is having problems, or the power goes out (that is a whole situation), or his machines are acting sketchy or he is sick. But all kids....all people have difficult circumstances. His just look a little different than most.

But he is SO easy to love.

released from the hospital!
He came home from the hospital on November 24th. Exactly 10 months after he was born and he spent every day of those 10 months in a hospital bed. Now he is with a family. People ask me often, "will you adopt him?". I don't know. Only time will tell. But I sure hope so....

because he is so easy to love.
