My poor blog has been pretty neglected lately. Between working full-time and going back to school part-time, I'm having a hard time keeping up!
Before I introduce today's Fatherless Friday child, I have a prayer request. A few weeks ago, I asked (begged) the Spina Bifida Resource Network to share about Konner on their Facebook page. They did, and MANY families experienced with Spina Bifida saw his sweet face!
Please pray that if one of these families is meant for him, that the Lord would place him on their hearts like a ton of bricks! A family who is experienced in caring for a child with SB would be perfect for him. These moms and dads have already been through the learning curve and are also set up with the right specialists.
Now, on to today's Fatherless Friday post. Prepare yourself...you just might die from the cuteness! Alban is a 3-year-old boy who also has Spina Bifida. It doesn't seem to have slowed him down at all! As soon as she saw him, Kara nicknamed him "Nugget"...fitting, right?
Say it with me..."AWWWWWW!"
His Reece's Rainbow profile lists his special needs as congenital hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida. He has a VP shunt to drain fluid from the brain to the abdominal cavity, and he has had the spinal repair for the SB. He's also had a “resection of lipoma outside dura mater of sacroiliac” – which likely means he had a fatty benign tumor removed.
Alban is a funny little guy, always willing to help. He has a ready smile and a laugh that makes you laugh right along with him. He loves to sing and dance and be paid attention to. All his nannies adore him and wish him a family. He loves to eat but especially noodles and greens.
If the picture doesn't make you want to jump on a plane and bust him out of his orphanage, there is a CUTE video of him as well.
Notice that as soon as he hears that baby bottle hit the floor, he runs over to help (even as his little buddies are chastising him for interrupting their song)! What a sweet boy!
