My Poster Child

Christian was asked to be included in 2 International publications for the Sturge-Weber Foundation within the last 3 years. We gratefully accepted both of them.

The first one was a brochure made to send to all the families across the world affected by Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS). That was published a couple of years ago. Christian was 2 in the picture.


The second one was a book made for young children with SWS to help explain to typical children that although their faces may look differently, they have many similarities. This book was published a couple of months ago. Here's a picture of Christian looking at it for the 1st time.


Earlier this year, he was asked to be in a book written by a friend of ours from church. It should be out sometime next year. That makes 3 publications that he's been in before the age of 6! Stay humble lil buddy, stay humble :-)!

We thank God for how He is using our handsome lil guy to touch so many lives across the world. The works of God are definitely being displayed in him (John 9:1-3)!

Oh Caryn!
Your little Christian (God's little Christian) is a blessed boy!
May God continue to strengthen you for the tasks he has for you!

Those pics of him that y'all used are my favorites! :) His smile melts me as you know since I tell you nearly every time I leave a comment. I just think it is such a blessing to see how God is using Christian!

Oh, and I just got inspired to do a children's book about Christian... like I was JUST inspired, so I'll let you know if God leads me any further in that direction, and of course I will let you read it even before it is sent off to the publisher! :)

That is so neat! How cool that his photo is encouraging other families and children around the world!
