Oliver is 1 year old

Yesterday we went to Oliver's 1st birthday party.
To me it was not only a time of celebration, but a time to give thanks for this little boy.
When born he was a very sick baby as seen here just 12 hours old and in intensive care.
I will not say more as that is Janie's story, not mine.
At the time we had people praying for him in many places in America, France, Africa and many places in England.
The second picture showns him as he is today. A beautiful, lively and very bright little boy.
We know we have a faithful God whatever the outcome but it is extra wonderful
to be able to thank God for this renewed life and the medical staff who spotted, intervened and treated within minutes of birth.
At the time I took the picture in intensive care I prayed over Oliver that he would have no lasting memories of his trauma and the numerous tests he had to go through.

I would say, from photographic evidence, that he fully recovered.
