our little blessing

Our son Teak Joseph Head was born on October 28th, 2010. He has been a blessing in our lives even before he was born. We truly feel honored that the Lord chose both of us to be the parents of this special boy. Teak was born with Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele and a minor hearing loss in both ears. Both un-related to each other. These are the curve balls of life. You never know when they are coming, you just keep your head up, step up and hit back with prayer, strength and love.
Welcome to our lives. Teak will one day change the world for the better just the way he has changed us.

Happy 1st Birthday - 10/28/11

Wow, what a year and how fast it has flown by! Teak turned a year old last Friday, Oct 28th. Can't believe that he is such a big boy now...we are entering into toddler years and we are feeling it. He has been walking for a couple weeks now and everyday he gets better. A year ago, we had no idea what the Lord had planned but He is good and we are so blessed yet so undeserving!

Smiling away, playing in his Original 1st Birthday shirt!

It was a beautiful fall day, perfect for a birthday party in the park.  We had Thundercloud subs, fruit and cupcakes along with great family and friends. Our neighborhood, Brentwood, has a great park with a shaded playground area.  We found a nice shaded picnic area to set up and still have a view of the ongoings.

Our son, with Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele does not have a shunt, doesn't need to be cathed and is walking! He, like every other SB kid out there, is going to do great things in this world. The people of the SB world are so giving and caring. They really want to share their experiences and hear your own experiences.

We are so excited for the next year of Teak's life and getting to know our beautiful blessing even better.
